Mardi Gras Cupcakes: Celebrate Fat Tuesday With These Easy Treats!

Between throwing beads and sipping on your beverage, hand your guests a festive Mardi Gras cupcake. They're super easy to make and are a fun and colorful addition to any Fat Tuesday celebration!

You'll need:

  • cake mix, plus ingredients to make it
  • white baking liners
  • 2 tubs white icing
  • food coloring
  • Mardi Gras cupcake picks (see link below)
  • 3 decorating bags and tips or plastic bags with the tips cut off

Here’s how you make them:

  1. Make the cake flavor of your choice by following the directions on the package and baking in white cupcake liners. Allow them to cool completely.
  2. Divide the frosting between three bowls. Using the food coloring, color one yellow, one green and one blue (or purple).
  3. Fill your decorating bags or plastic bags and pipe the icing onto the cupcakes.
  4. Top each cupcake with a festive Mardi Gras cupcake pick . If you don’t have any, you could leave plain or use colored sugar or sprinkles.
