How to make Mario Kart Pull Apart Cupcakes
13X19-inch cake board
green leaf Wilton gel food color
sky blue Wilton gel food color
Wilton tip #1A
Wilton tip #234
ice cream cone
Mario Kart cars
OPTIONAL: chocolate rocks (found on the baking isle at Hobby Lobby)
Gel Food Coloring VS Liquid Food Coloring
Arrange baked cupcakes as best you can into an oval shape. Tint most of the frosting green. I used Wilton Leaf Green.
Cut two cupcakes in half. Place 3 full size cupcakes on top and the two half cupcakes on each side.
Using a Wilton tip #789 in a back and forth motion, cover the cupcakes with a thin layer of green frosting (except the center where the pond will be). Use an off set spatula to smooth frosting.
Tint the remaining frosting blue. I used Wilton Sky Blue. Add a small amount of frosting to 5 of the cupcakes at the top of the arrangement. Using a Wilton tip #1A in s spiral motion, cover the center (pond area) with a thin layer of blue frosting. Use an off set spatula to create texture.
Crumble a cupcake to make the race track. Don’t worry about the crumbs, you’ll be covering them up with grass.
Using a Wilton tip #234 add grass with the remaining green frosting, making sure to have some tip over onto the track. NOTE: I had to order this tip, while tip #233 is considered the “grass” tip this one is the larger size to that and will enable you to make grass at a much faster pace.
Place a mini ice cream cone in the center of the pond, add a dollop of frosting, place the trophy. OPTIONAL: Add some grass to the edges of the cone spilling into the water along with some chocolate rocks.

If you choose you can add a few flower shaped sprinkles. You can find them at Hobby Lobby, Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft stores and Michaels. The fish sprinkles are Celebration candy brand and can be found at Hobby Lobby, Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft stores and Michaels.
NOTE: All the tips with the exception of #234 were purchased at Walmart.
