Phoenix Jean Grey cupcakes

My friend Sarah had a birthday and knowing that she loves Phoenix, I knew I had to make a spectacular cupcake.

Phoenix is one of the most iconic Marvel X-Men characters and her symbol is recognizable. I decided to make the Phoenix emblem out of melted green and yellow chocolate, make them into lollipops and use them as cupcake toppers.

The cupcakes were a big hit, but what was the perfect accessory gift to these cupcakes? A custom made 4 foot tall Phoenix pinata, what else?

Melt the green candy melts according to package directions and pour into lollipop molds. Set in freezer for 5 minutes, then pop out.

For the symbol, print out the Phoenix symbol to about 2-1/4″ inches and tape a piece of parchment over the print.

Melt the yellow candy melts according to package directions and using a drizzle bottle draw right on top of the parchment, outlining the Phoenix logo. Once that is all filled in, place the logos in the freezer for ten minutes. When they harden up they will slip right off the parchment.

Using more of the melted chocolate as ‘glue,’ stick the symbols to the front of the already prepared green chocolate lollipops.

Place the toppers into cupcakes and serve.

    what I really like about the things you do is that they look so extremely difficult to make, but then you break it down into pieces and it’s like: “heeey, i think I can do that and it wouldn’t look awful.”
