We’ve been waiting since 2004… it’s hard to believe it’s been 14 years since the Parr family first graced movie screens to show their secret identities… superheroes! We fell in love with Dash’s determination, Violet’s newfound confidence and Elasti-girl’s fierce spirit of motherhood. As for Edna Mode, well, we learned “never to look back… it distracts from the present” which is where we are now! Incredibles 2 is here and I’m ready to celebrate the Supers. Try these Tricolor Incredibles Cupcakes with your family for multi-colored goodness that’s sure to please.
Incredibles Icing Logos
First up, you’ll want to make the Incredibles Icing Logos. They need to dry for a day or so before you handle them, so work up a parchment covered cookie sheet to prep them. Find a cool spot for the Incredibles Cupcakes Icing Logos to dry so they will sit on the cupcakes nicely. Find the recipe card for them below and an inexpensive yet complete icing kit with piping bags here. First, print out your Incredibles Logo and trace it onto printer paper a few times. Place those under the parchment paper and get to work, following these steps closely.
Begin with the yellow “i” and carefully fill the center with white. Next, create the orange outer rings.
The black center fill is the last outline step for the Incredibles Cupcakes Icing Logos. Don’t mix your colors here!
Lastly, carefully fill in the remaining areas with the proper colors. Repeat as many times as you would like to have icing logos. Remember to let them dry!
- 2 egg whites
- 1 1/2 C powder sugar
- 1/4 tsp cream of tartar
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- Four piping bags fitted with the number 2 tip
- Orange, Black and Yellow gel food coloring
- Incredibles team logo image from google
- Pen and white paper
- Cookie sheetParchment paper
- Locate the image of Incredibles logo and print it out. Using a pen or pencil trace the image onto the white paper about 3-4 times 4 inches apart.
- Place your traced images onto the cookie sheet.
- Overlay a sheet of parchment paper onto the cookie sheet and tape the edges so that you have a smooth flat area.
- Using a standing mixer, combine the powder sugar, egg whites, cream of tarter and vanilla and mix on medium speed.
- If this royal icing is too soupy, add in 1/2 C powder sugar. Continue to mix until you get stiff peaks.
- Evenly divide the icing into the four bowls, adding a 3 orange drops into the first bowl and mix until combined.
- Add a 3 yellow drops to the second bowl, 3 black drops to the third bowl and leave the white icing in the fourth bowl. Then, scoop each of the icing colors into a piping bag.
- Using the golden yellow, pipe out the " i " in the logo, leaving the center clear for the white icing. Fill that opening with the white icing.
- Using the orange icing, outline the orange rings in the logo. Using the Black icing, outline the inside of the logo. Using the orange icing again, fill in the orange lines in the logo. Using the black icing, fill in the black part of the logo.
- Set aside for 1 day to dry.
Tricolor Incredibles Cupcakes
Next up, the colorful Incredibles Cupcakes! Create your batter per the directions, separating the finished batter into a few bowls. Here is where you will add the gel food coloring which is more potent than the original liquid food coloring; you’ll be able to use less. Spoon the three colors into the cupcake liners.
After your cupcakes are in the oven, you’ll want to prep your icing. Much like the separated bowls of cupcake batter, you’ll want to repeat the process with the icing. Spooning it into the icing bags can have a bit of a learning curve, but if Bob and Frozone can save people from burning building, you can do it! Just remember, NO CAPES.
