Cupcakes are one of my favourite things to bake. There’s so many different things you can do with them. Different flavour combinations, different decoration etc. I’ve already made Ood Cupcakes as part of this months Doctor Who theme but I’ve wanted to make these cosmic cupcakes ever since looking for inspiration for the Glitter Cupcakes I made a while ago.

They look really fun and are pretty easy to make. For the sponge I made a batch of vanilla cupcakes, like my James Bond Cupcakes. For extra Doctor Who-ness you could add some Who themed Cupcake Toppers and Cases.
I got these Dalek cupcake wraps a long time ago. Unfortunately I don’t think they’re available anymore.
Beat half the icing sugar with the butter until fully combined. Add the vanilla extract, 1 tbsp milk and the remaining icing sugar and mix again. If the icing is very thick add the remaining tbsp of milk.
Divide the buttercream into three bowls. Colour one bowl pink, one blue and one purple (blue+red). Put a blob of black food colouring in each bowl and swirl into the buttercream, not mixing completely.
Get a piping bag with a large star tip. Put a teaspoon of each colour into the bag, alternating until you've used up all the icing. Pipe the buttercream onto the cupcakes. Sprinkle over your decorations.
