Cupcakes have become increasing popular in the dessert world. Those little bake shops are popping up everywhere to dessert lovers delight. While these niche bakers may have you on taste, they won`t get the edge on style. Turning your cupcakes from cake with icing into a circus parade or a picnic of ants has never been easier thanks to bulk candy. Jerry`s Nut House carries a large variety of bulk candy for conjuring cupcake creations from the farthest corners of your imagination.
It really is so easy to transform a cupcake into almost anything using bulk candy and other bulk snacks. Small colourful candies, such as mini M&Ms or Sixlets, are perfect for creating borders, outlining shapes, or makings small designs. They are also perfect for eyes and other facial features. Flexible candy, like licorice, sticks of gum, marshmallows, or fruit rolls can be twisted, braided, knotted or cut to make shapes. Taffy and chews, like Tootsie Rolls and caramels, can be combined, shaped, rolled, and cut with scissors, a roll cutter, or knife. Just heat in the microwave for no more than 3 seconds to soften, then roll out on parchment paper to make thin sheets of colourful candy. Hard candy like Lifesavers or Jolly Ranchers can be melted down and cut into shapes with an oiled cookie cutter. You can also fill prebaked cookies with crushed candy pieces and bake them for a few minutes more to melt the candy.
Jerry`s Nut House is an excellent resource when looking for bulk candy for your cupcaking adventures. In fact, you can decorate cupcakes into ants stealing fruit at a picnic with ingredients found in the bulk candy, chocolate, and dried fruit sections of the Jerry`s Nut House website. Ice the cupcakes with green tinted frosting. Combine 1 cup of coconut and a few drops of green food coloring in a zip lock bag and shake vigorously to make grass. Pour the coconut on to a plate and roll the edges of each cupcake into the coconut. Then, fill a zip lock bag with chocolate frosting and snip the corner. To make the ants, arrange three chocolate covered almonds in a row on the top of each cupcake, connecting each almond with a dot of frosting between the candies. Pipe three legs on each side of the ants, and two antennae on the heads. Secure gummy fruits, such as orange slices or watermelons, to the backs of four of the ants with chocolate frosting. Arrange the cupcakes so that it looks like the ants are marching in a row!
