      Glow in the dark cupcake frosting using tonic water and jello. You'll need a black light to make it glow, btw! Very cool! Hey, Dana: You're right, these would make good Halloween cupcakes!

      Glow in the dark cupcake frosting. Ghoulishly Glowing Cupcakes 1 black light 24 prepared and cooled cupcakes White Glow In The Dark Frosting 7 cups confectioners' sugar 1 cup vegetable shortening 1 teaspoon clear vanilla extract 5 tablespoons tonic water {diet tonic water works too} mini chocolate chips morsels Extras Needed for Green Glowing Frosting Neon Food Color 0.3 ounce package of either Lime or Orange Gelatin 1 cup boiling water 1 cup chilled tonic water Prepare desired cupcakes and allow to cool. Begin frosting by adding confectioners' sugar, shortening, vanilla, and 3 tablespoons tonic water into a large bowl. Beat on low speed until no loss sugar is visible. Add remaining two tablespoons as needed to bring frosting to piping consistency. Mix at high speed for about a minute to allow frosting to become light and fluffy. Place half of white frosting into a separate bowl and set aside. Add neon food coloring to frosting until it reaches desired color {orange for orange gelatin, green for lime gelatin}. Pipe colored frosting onto cooled cupcakes and place in the freezer for at least an hour. Meanwhile pipe white frosting on half of the cupcakes using a large round frosting tip. Add two mini chocolate chip morsels for the ghost's eyes to finish ghost cupcakes. After lettering colored cupcakes freeze, prepare the gelatin by adding gelatin mix to 1 cup boiling water. Stir for about 2 minutes then add 1 cup chilled tonic water. Transfer to a container that will let you easily dip frosting into and place into an ice bath to cool. Keep gelatin in ice bath stirring occasionally until gelatin is cool but not yet set {about 5 to 10 minutes}. When gelatin is cool to the touch take cupcakes out of the freezer a couple at a time. Dip into gelatin upside down, submerging the frosting but not the cake {it is ok for the gelatin to drip onto cupcake, just don't submerge it completely}. Rotate cupcakes dipping and then returning to the freezer for about a minutes to set gelatin, then re-dip. Dip 4 to 6 times for best results. Refrigerate until a couple minutes before serving to keep gelatin set. Then place cupcakes under a black light and watch then glow. {Make enough frosting for about 24 cupcakes}

      Glow in the dark cupcake frosting using tonic water and jello - doesn't really glow in the dark exactly, but will glow under black light. Might be cute for a space themed bday party, Halloween party, or some other fun theme.
