Step 1

Bake cupcakes according to your preferred recipe using the Red Spot Baking Cases and allow to cool.

Step 2

Mix up enough buttercream to fill three piping bags, and separate into three separate bowls.

Step 3

Use the paste colours to colour each bowl of buttercream: one with the Pillar box red powder, one with Sunflower and another with white. Add colour in small drops until you reach the desired strength.

Step 4

Fill 3 separate piping bags with the three colours of buttercream.

Attach the star piping nozzle to another piping bag, then pipe a strip of each colour into the new piping bag as per the images.

Step 5

Using the new bag containing the three colours, pipe onto the cupcakes as shown in our images.

Finish off your cupcakes with your Superhero Sugar Decorations.
