    Create the Captain Marvel Emblem
    Captain Marvel Jumbo CupcakesFirst, I suggest making your Captain Marvel emblems, also known as the North Star or Bethlehem Star. Take about half a bag of the yellow chocolates and place them in a Ziploc bag, melt in 30-second intervals in the microwave until the chocolate is melted and smooth. Once melted, snip a tip off the bag and squeeze into the molds. Place the molds in the refrigerator for about a half hour to an hour to set up. Once they are firm, remove from the mold and use a butter knife to trim off any excess. I suggest placing these back in the fridge until you are ready to use them.

    Next up is preparing and baking the cupcakes. Take the white cake mix and prepare per the directions on the box. It doesn’t matter which white cake mix you use so feel free to use any brand. Once the batter is ready, equally separate it into 3 bowls.
    Captain Marvel Jumbo CupcakesIn bowl 1 add the Royal Blue food color gel. In bowl 2 add the Red food color gel. In bowl 3 add the Gold food color gel. Use 2-5 drops per color until you have your desired color. The more gold you use the darker gold it will become.

    Captain Marvel Jumbo CupcakesOnce baked, set aside to cool. You will need these cupcakes to cool completely before icing them. If you don’t wait, the icing could melt or the cupcakes will cave in from the weight of the frosting and emblem.
    1st Layer of Frosting
    First, whip the butter until creamy. Take about 5 minutes.

    Sweet Tooth Fairy Hero Sprinkle MixNext, lay a piece of saran wrap on the counter and place the frosting in lines next to each other. Fold the saran wrap over and twist ends. Snip the end off one side and place into piping bag. You can use a tip or just cut a big hole. I cut a whole and frosted the first layer in a swirl.

    Place the frosting tip in the piping bag and then add your frosting.
    Place a substantial amount of the frosting on the cupcake and then add your topper. You will want to place these in the fridge to firm up. That chocolate topper is fairly heavy and can collapse the frosting if left at room temperature.
