Servings: 24

Prep Time: 65 min.

Cook Time: 18-21 min.

Ingredients

  • 1 box (18.25 oz.) cake mix
  • 1 bag (12 oz.) white-chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup each purple, blue, and orange sanding sugar
  • 1 can (16 oz.) vanilla frosting
  • Wax paper

Supplies

  • Wallykazam! ABC Cupcake Template
Tip: Check your market for a package of plastic frosting bags. To fill one, fold the top half down, holding the bottom with one hand. With the other hand, and using a large spoon, scoop frosting into it. Unfold the bag. To use the bag, hold at the top and push down using a twisting motion. You may also want to experiment with the star tip by decorating a piece of cardboard.

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line 24 cupcake cups with paper liners. Prepare the cake mix according to package directions and divide the batter evenly between the prepared cupcake pans. Bake until golden and a toothpick inserted in the centers comes out clean, about 18 to 21 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack and cool for 5 minutes. Invert the cupcakes and cool completely.

  2. Step 2

    Cut the wax paper into 3- by 4-inch pieces and have several sheet pans handy.

  3. Step 3

    Melt the white-chocolate chips in the microwave, stirring occasionally, until just melted, about 1 minute. Place the cupcake template on a sheet pan with a piece of wax paper on top. Spoon the melted chocolate into a resealable bag, snip off a very small corner of the bag and pipe the outlines of the letters onto the wax paper. Fill in the outlines with chocolate and tap the pans lightly to smooth the tops. While the letters are still wet, cover them with sanding sugar. Refrigerate until set, about 3 minutes.

  4. Step 4

    When the letters are firm, remove excess sugar and peel them from the wax paper; set aside. (Letters can be made up to two days in advance and stored in a cool place.)

  5. Step 5

    Spoon 1/4 cup of the vanilla frosting into a resealable bag. Cover the tops of the cupcakes with the remaining frosting. Place a letter on the center of each cupcake top.

Tip: Kids will enjoy counting out the small chocolate candies and attaching them to the halved marshmallows.
