Cupcake Fondue

Updated on July 9, 2012

I have been scouring the internet to look for creative things to do with bridal showers. I have the honor of hosting several in the upcoming months and I am always looking out for unique things to try! I recently found this awesome idea for turning cupcakes into fondue! You just need a fondue pot or a double boiler. I'm thinking I will also rent a chocolate fountain from a local party store. This is really easy to do! I love fondue, and making mini cupcakes is sure to be fun for all the guests!

What to do:

Sometimes I like making cupcakes from scratch, but due to the amount I have to make for an event like this, I find it easier to use store bought cake mix. But that doesn't mean they will be boring.

The flavors I liked for this were strawberry, lemon, and vanilla. They look pretty, and are perfect for summer showers.

I chose candies that match the colors of the wedding. My sprinkles will be different shades of pinks and greens, and I want to get a few different varieties of berries. I want to decorate a few of each kind of cupcake just for ambiance, and then leave the rest for the fondue!

Fondue is really easy to do. If you don't have a fondue pot, a double boiler works well. Just add chocolate to melt and plug it in!

Along with basic chocolate, I found a terrific sugar glaze that will go perfectly!


The Glaze

Ingredients:

3 cups powdered sugar

1/3 cup liquid: use juice, milk, or water (I plan on making a few kinds, so I'm doing an orange juice one, a cranberry or pomegranate juice one, maybe a lemonade one, and a milk based one)

2 tbsp light corn syrup

Mix everything together and you have a perfect glaze!

This mixture doesn't need to be heated, so just use fun ramekins to place the glazes in!

Place sprinkles nearby for decorating!

      Sorry I meant "That is the cutest thing ever!" not "Thank"

      Thank is the cutest thing ever! I love the idea, if only I knew someone who was getting married… hmmm… I am definitely going to pin this hub – I think pinterest would go wild with your idea.
