Gulp Bubble Gum Cupcakes

Gulp.js is a task-runner, meaning it’s used in development to automate certain tasks for you. Tasks like bundling, minifying and uglifying all of your javascript files together or compiling your SASS to CSS. What makes this so useful is that you can set up gulp to watch your files, re-running tasks every time you make changes. This drastically speeds up your development workflow. So start using gulp and also gulp these Bubblegum Cupcakes down immediately.

Ingredients:
Cake:
1 Box of White Cake Mix
3 Eggs
1/2 cup unsalted room temperture butter
1 cup water

Frosting:
2 sticks of unsalted room temperture butter
2 tbsp whole milk
5 cups powdered sugar
2 tbsp marshmallow fluff
1 tsp salt
Food Coloring if desired
Bubble Gum Flavoring ( I used Lorann Oils, 1 whole bottle http://amzn.to/1Mgqw3Q)

Decorating:
Piping Bag
Large Tip ( I used Love2Bake XL CLosed star tip http://amzn.to/1TDiaVt)
Gumballs

Cupcakes:
I used a boxed white cake mix. Usually I would recommend making the cake from scratch, but the frosting is what make these cupcakes so yummy. I subbed out the oil for butter which gives the boxed mix a little more homemade like texture and flavor.

Mix the cake mix according to package directions. I used Pillsbury Classic White cake.

Fill cupcake cups about 3/4 of the way full and bake according to package directions. Let cool at least 1 hour.

Bubble Gum Frosting:

Mix together all ingredients in a mixing bowl. Whip for 1 minute on medium speed, scrape down sides with a spatula. Continue to whip for another 30 seconds. Make adjustments to color if desired. I really like the hot pink color to contrast with the gumballs. I bet a neon blue would like amazing too!

Fill your piping bag, if you are piping. If not just frost with a knife and decorate with gumballs!

I am not the best piper in the world. Actually, I am still pretty bad at it. But one trick I learned was to use the XL piping tips. I like the closed star tip because it looks like a rose after being piped on. Start piping in the middle of the cupcake and go in a circle motion until you reach the edges! Ta da! Now you have a professional looking cupcake. Trust me it takes lots of practice. Here is a short video of me piping one cupcake. Yes, I need a manicure badly.
