Servings 12 cupcakes


  • 1 box cake mix
  • 2 cans frosting
  • 1 package white chocolate
  • food coloring yellow



  • Line the bottom of two 12-cup muffin tins with paper liners.
  • Prepare and bake cake mix according to package instructions.


  • Melt white chocolate according to package instructions.
  • Spoon melted chocolate into a small Ziploc or piping bag.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Gently squeeze the bag to pipe the shape of a wing. Use a butter knife to smooth the chocolate. Repeat process to create two wings per cupcake.
  • Place baking sheet into freezer to harden.


  • Place 2/3 of frosting in bowl and add yellow food coloring until desired color is achieved.
  • When cupcakes are completely cool, spread frosting over each cupcake.
  • In a separate mixing bowl, mix remaining frosting with yellow food coloring. This color should be a lighter yellow than before.
  • Spoon frosting into Ziploc/piping bag. Gently pipe swirl patterns onto each cupcake.
  • Take the hardened wings out of the freezer. They should easily peel away from the parchment paper. Use a dab of remaining frosting to stick two wings onto each cupcake.
