Cupcake Saturday!

Welcome to another Cupcake Saturday! I'm so excited to share this week's cupcake with you. These ghoulishly glowing cupcakes would be a great touch to your Halloween party! I originally saw these somewhere on pinterest, but found a great set of directions for them here. These cupcakes glow under a black light. Here they are in normal light:
 We used a regular chocolate cupcake with buttercream frosting. The milk in the frosting was replaced with tonic water, which makes it glow. The glow effect was increased by dipping the cupcakes (frosting and all, nice and frozen) into a jello-tonic water mixture.

I'm not exactly sure why they ended up orange instead of glow-in-the-dark green, but I think it's even cooler that they changed color. Any other science-y people out there know?

Thanks for stopping by!
