Ant-Man and the Wasp inspired Cupcakes

This summer is going to be so fun with great movies and one of the ones I am looking forward to is Ant-Man and the Wasp! Where was Scott during the events of Infinity War? Why wasn’t he out there helping? So many questions. So now we get to find them out! ANTMAN AND THE WASP arrives in theatres everywhere on July 6th! And in honor of that, I wanted to share these delicious Ant-Man and the Wasp inspired Cupcakes.  I love Marvel themed recipes.
1 box of white cake mix
3 eggs room temp
1/2 C of softened unsalted sweet cream butter
1 C whole milk
1TBSP pure vanilla extract
Yellow, and black gel food coloring
Clear cupcake liners
Muffin pan
Preheat oven to 350.
Line muffin pan with the white cupcake liners
In a medium bowl, add the cake mix, butter, milk, and vanilla extract and stir until combined
Divide the batter into 3 bowls and add a food color gel into each bowl.
Add the yellow to one bowl, and add the black food coloring to the second bowl.
Leave the third bowl white.
Begin to fill the cupcake liners.
Scoop about 1 tbsp of each colored batter into the cupcake continue to rotate colors until it is 3/4 of the way full.
Bake in the oven for about 18-20 minutes.
Pull out the cupcakes and allow to cool before frosting.

Mix until you see stiffed peaks in your frosting.
Once the frosting is made, split it into three bowls

Place the piping bag into a large glass and fold the sides of the bag over.
Scoop one spoonful of the yellow frosting onto one side of piping bag.
Now scoop one spoonful of the black frosting onto another side of the piping bag
Scoop one spoonful of the white frosting onto the last side of the piping bag and squeeze the icing together.

  1. These look super fun although I don’t use food coloring in my cooking or baking. Wonder if there are natural alternatives to achieve the same colors?

  2. (Ant-Man and the Wasp inspired Cupcakes) These cute cupcakes would be so much fun to make this fall with my five year old grandson. I know that I like having cupcakes with just a smidgen of ice-cream. 🙂
