The Ultimate Transformers Cupcake Recipe for Your Favorite Autobot!

Throwing a party to celebrate the release of Transformers: The Last Knight? You have to make these cool Transformers cupcakes! Grab the recipe!

Planning a special party for your favorite little Autobot this summer? You need this insanely cute and fun Transformers cupcake recipe! It’s so much more than meets the eye. Sorry, I couldn’t resist. I’m not going to lie, it does take a bit more work than our typical cupcake recipes, but I think  you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how easy it is over all when you follow our directions.

One thing I LOVE about these cupcakes: they double as decor. I’m all about party food that also works as decorations. Two birds, one bush and all (I never liked the whole stone analogy, let’s not throw things at the birds!). Read on for how to make these cupcakes, then print out the recipe card for later!

You’ll want to make the Autobot icing transfer first because it needs to set. It’s best to make it the night before you do the cupcakes, but even a few hours prior will do.

  • Take your piece of paper and place on top of the image

  • Using a pen or pencil trace the image onto the white paper about 3-4 times 4 inches apart
  • Place the paper with the copies onto the cookie sheet
  • Fit a sheet of parchment paper onto the cookie sheet and tape the edges so that you have a smooth flat area
  • Using the standing mixertransformers-cupcake-recipe, combine the powder sugar, egg whites, cream of tarter and vanilla and mix on medium speed
  • if the royal icing is still a yellow soup, add in 1/2 C powder sugar
  • Continue to mix for another 5 minutes until stiff peaks form
  • Split the icing into two bowls
  • Add the red food dye into 1 bowl and the black food dye into the other bowl
