I called this a glowing cupcake recipe, but the truth is that these babies don’t glow on their own, and neither do the cupcakes you’ll be making. (What?) You will need a blacklight, but if you are throwing a party with glowing cupcakes, it’s worth the investment. That is, of course, assuming that you don’t want to look like a lamey-pants in front of the cool kids. “You’re too old to say that.” Don’t be a ninnymuggins, you booger-pickin’ lamey pants. “I’m leaving.”
The secret ingredient is actually tonic water, a liquid that glows under blacklight due to some fancy chemical that’s in it. Long story short: you put some of that in the frosting mix, and your cupcakes glow. Note that the white cupcakes glow the brightest, and that there’s a whole different procedure for the green ones: you have to freeze them and dip ‘em in gelatin made with tonic water. Even after all that, they just don’t glow as brightly as the white cupcakes.
