The Deadpool movie franchise had me as soon as I heard the name “Ryan Reynolds.” Let’s be honest, he is not only funny, but HAWT!! So, these Deadpool Cupcakes come out of the oven hot – but you let them cool before you add a touch of sweetness to decorate them. I am pretty sure you will be seeing more of Deadpool in movies to come, so pin this recipe for later – you will be all set!

These cupcakes start out with a boxed mix, just because it is a time-saver for the putzy part of multiple colors. This will make 18 cupcakes, if that is important to know for any kind of party size.

Deadpool Cupcakes

You will need:

  • 1 box of vanilla cake mix
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 C of softened unsalted sweet cream butter
  • 1 C whole milk
  • 1TBSP pure vanilla bean paste 
  • Red and Black gel food coloring 
  • cupcake liners
  • cupcake pan

Directions for cupcakes:

Preheat oven to 350 and line cupcake pan with the liners. In a medium bowl, combine the cake mix, butter, milk, and vanilla bean paste. Mix until all are combined. Divide the batter into 2 different bowls and add a color into each bowl. One bowl is for Red and the second bowl is for Black. Mix until the shades are what you like.

Scoop about 1 tbsp of each colored batter into the cupcake liners until the liners are 3/4 full.

Bake in the oven for about 21 minutes. Pull out and place on the side to cool.

Frosting Ingredients :

  • 1 C unsalted sweet cream butter, softened
  • 2 1/2 C powder sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla 
  • 3-5 TBSP heavy whipping cream
  • Red and Black gel food coloring
  • 1 disposable piping bag with a star tip

How to Make Deadpool Cupcakes Sprinkle mix:

1 pouch of Red and Black Nonpareil’s, Red and Black Jumbo Nonpareil’s and sprinkle Jimmies (all bought from Michael’s craft stores)

Combine all sprinkles into a bowl and mix until well combined and set aside.

Deadpool Cupcake Decorating Instructions:

Frosting Directions :

Using a standing mixer, combine all ingredients and mix on medium speed. If your frosting starts looking like powdery rocks, add another tablespoon of heavy whipping cream. Mix until you see creamy stiffed peaks. Once the frosting is made, split it into two different bowls. Add about 2-4 drops of each color in their own bowls and mix until the color is completely mixed.

Place the piping bag into a large glass and fold the sides of the bag over the rim of the glass.

Scoop one spoonful of the Black icing onto one side of piping bag.

Scoop one spoonful of the Red icing onto another side of the piping bag. Bring the pastry bag edges up and twist them together to start decorating! Frost the cooled cupcakes.
