These Olympic Torch Cupcakes are not difficult, but you will need to do a little planning and start the Candy Clay the day before. You can find the recipe, directions and watch my video on how to make Candy Clay. After the Candy Clay is all mixed up and resting, then it’s time to start on the cupcakes.

Unlike cake ice cream cones, the sugar cones don’t do as well {in my experience} in the oven. I usually place the cone right on top of the cupcake while it’s baking, but the sugar cones get too brown and start to open. So I found it easiest to just bake a batch of mini cupcakes and place them inside of the sugar cone.

Now it’s time to decorate…

  • Roll out candy clay between 2 pieces of wax paper, and cut fire with a cookie cutter {we used the edge of various shapes} or cut with a knife
  • Frost the cupcake – I used a #1M round tip
  • Place fire into the frosting

    Your creativity in the kitchen always amazes me and those torch cupcakes are no exception. I can only imagine how fun it is to be invited to a party at your home.

    And thank you to the other reader who asked about the holder, After reading that question I realized that having them in the holder really helps the illusion of being a torch — especially if you want to have them as part of your table decoration at a party.
