How To Make Glow In The Dark Icing

As Halloween sneaks up around the corner, the pumpkins, decorations and haunted houses start popping up everywhere! So to get in the spirit, why not add some Halloween fun into your baking. With a few simple kitchen cupboard ingredients, you can create your very own glow in the dark cupcake icing. Not only will it add a special twist to your Halloween dessert, the glow off the frosting will surprise guests of all ages! Check out the instructions below to create your very own glow in the dark icing:

Ingredients Needed:

  • 1 Cup Of Butter
  • 4-5 Cups Of Icing Sugar
  • 1 Cup And 4-5 Tablespoons Of Tonic Water
  • 1.5 Tablespoon Of Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Box Of Coloured Jello
  • 1 Cup Of Boiling Water


  1. Start by creating your basic frosting. Beat the butter until smooth, add powdered sugar and tonic water alternating as you add it. Add vanilla and beat till smooth.
  2. Ice your cupcakes however you prefer and pop them in the freezer. They should be in there long enough for the icing to harden.
  3. Next, boil 1 cup of water and add Jello. Stir until combined, about 2-3 minutes. Add 1 cup of tonic water, mix and remove from heat. Place the mixture into a second bowl and keep that bowl on ice to make the Jello as cool as possible. Once the Jello is cool to the touch but not firm, give it a quick stir and remove it from the ice.
  4. Once removed, it’s time to dip the cupcakes. Remove them from the freezer, dip one at a time and replace them back in the freezer once they have been dipped. The more you repeat this process, the more they will glow! Serve once the glow has dried and display them under a black light for an even better glow!
