Make Your Own Disneyland Diamond Anniversary Cupcake! – My Disneyland 60th Anniversary House Party


Hi Dreamers! Today’s the last video in our Disneyland
Diamond Celebration series before the big house party on Twitter at hashtag #DL60HouseParty. Tomorrow we’ll be watching the Dateline
Disneyland Official Opening Day Ceremonies exactly 60 years to the second from its original
broadcast at 7:30PM Eastern or 4:30PM Pacific. You can read more about it in the description
below. It’s time for dessert! For our Diamond Anniversary Celebration House
Party, today we’ll be making blue and white cupcakes inspired by the 60th Anniversary
design currently available at Disneyland. Let’s get started! You’ll need the following ingredients. To
save time and fit the 1955 theme, we’re using a pre-packaged cake mix and icing. This
will help us focus on the decoration. You’ll also need eggs, water and oil to complete
the batter. The Disneyland cupcakes are a lemon cake with
strawberry filling, so you’ll need jam and lemon extract. For the icing, I’ve got two jars of fluffy
white icing. Some blue food colouring. And piping bags. You’ll need a flat petal
tip and a large round tip. White chocolate candy melts for decorations. I also found cupcake liners with the exact
pattern used at Disneyland, though any liner will do. Mix up your batter, whether it’s homemade
or cake mix. I added a couple drops of lemon extract for that lemon flavour. Place your cupcake liners into a muffin tin,
and spoon the batter into the cups. Time to bake! Remove from the oven, and let them cool completely. Watch for kittens prowling around for a taste
test. To melt the white chocolate for our decorations,
bring a small pot with some water until just before boiling. Take the pot off the heat, and place a metal
bowl over the pot to make a double-boiler. Add the white chocolate candy melts to the
bowl, and stir using a plastic utensil. Wood utensils can hold moisture, and that
can ruin your white chocolate. Keep stirring until the all the chocolate
solids are fully melted. You can also use the microwave, but I prefer
this method. I’m making two decorations: chocolate jewels
and a chocolate Disneyland ‘D’. For the jewels, I spoon some of the melted
chocolate into a mould. For the letter ‘D’ I’m going to set
up a piping bag with a small round tip, and place the melted chocolate into the bag. As a guide, I’ve printed out a reversed
Disneyland ‘D’ on a regular piece of paper and placed the parchment paper over top. I then pipe the chocolate carefully over the
‘D’ shape. Don’t worry if you make a mistake you can fix it later. When my cupcakes were baking, the tops spread
out too far, so I cut off some of the excess to make a nice round perfect cupcake top. Using a small spoon, I cut a small hole in
the top of the cupcake. But don’t throw away that piece! Add a spoonful of strawberry jam into the
hole for the filling. Place the top of the hole gently back onto
the cupcake to cover the jam. Over to the mixer! Spoon some icing into the mixer, remembering
to set aside some white icing for later. Smear the mixing paddle with the food colouring
and mix well to incorporate evenly. You’re going for a rich, diamond blue. Now to pipe the icing. The Disneyland cupcake
has a cone of white icing, so use a large, round piping tip. I’m using a textured tip
because that’s what I had. Switch to a flat petal piping tip, and pipe
U-shaped ribbons along the side of the cake. Make a single layer. Don’t worry if you
can still see some of the cake underneath. I’ll be covering it with blue icing later. Add the blue icing to a new piping bag, and,
using the flat piping tip, overlap the white ribbons with blue ribbons. Go around the cake
twice with the blue icing ribbons. To add more shimmer to this Diamond cupcake,
I’ve got some silver sprinkles to add to the top. To paint my white chocolate decorations, I
add a few drops of lemon extract to edible silver colour dust, and mix to incorporate. Then I evenly paint the white chocolate decorations
silver. De-mould the white chocolate diamond—it
should pop out fairly cleanly—and place it on top of the cupcake. And gently place the silver ‘D’ on top
of your very own Disneyland Diamond Anniversary cupcake! I hope you enjoyed the video and I hope to
see you tomorrow at our Twitter House Party! Don’t forget hashtag #DL60HouseParty! I
hope you comment, like and subscribe and see ya real soon!
