This fun idea was inspired by the movie Bridesmaids. If you haven’t seen the movie, the bride loves all things Paris and I knew I wanted to do something fun with that theme.
As I watched the movie, my second inspirational strike came when the main character gets the bridal shower invitation. It was crazy and way over-the-top but it’s also crazy unique. How do you capture that awesome uniqueness in way that doesn’t cost a fortune and is easy to duplicate? These awesome Eiffel Tower cupcakes with hidden messages.
Of course, you don’t have to use them for bridesmaids (that ship sailed 3 kids ago for me). Add a sweet “Thank you for coming” message or “I’m lucky to have friends like you”. No matter how you use them, your guests will love biting into these sweet sentiments. Just be sure to let your guests know there’s a surprise inside. You don’t want them eating your message.
Eiffel Tower Cupcakes Materials
Remove the cupcake liners from your prepared chocolate cupcakes.
Next, cut off the top of a cupcake just below the top.
- You have to cut the top of the cupcake off to protect the hidden message. If you cut the cavity in the top and ice over it, the icing will ruin the paper that the message is on.
Then scoop out a small amount from the bottom center with a spoon or knife.
Write your message on a small piece of paper (or print out the free ones above) and roll it up as pictured.
Add your rolled message into the small cavity. Be sure the seam is placed down.
Next, add icing to a small plastic resealable bag and snip off the corner.
Use the bag to pipe a line of icing on the outer edge of the cupcake around the cavity with the message.
Place the cupcake top back on the cupcake.
Then ice the top of the cupcake like normal. Make sure you add quite a bit of icing. You need enough to act as a stabilizer for your Eiffel Towers.
- Smooth your icing with a rubber spatula if desired. I did this to mine because I didn’t like the look of the piping.
Repeat steps 2 through 9 with the rest of your cupcakes and then set them aside.
Print out the Eiffel Tower template.
Next, lay a piece of parchment paper over the template.
Melt your chocolate and place the melted chocolate in your second resealable plastic bag.
- Make sure you use chocolate almond bark to make these. Any other kind of chocolate won’t stand up on the cupcakes because it’s too soft.
Again cut the corner off of the bag. It needs to be very small.
Pipe the chocolate onto the parchment paper over the template.
After you finish one chocolate Eiffel Tower, move your parchment paper so that a blank spot is over your template and again pipe on chocolate.
Repeat until you have the number of chocolate Eiffel Towers that you need for all of your cupcakes.
Place your chocolate Eiffel Towers in the freezer to set them.
After the chocolates have set, place them in the frosting on top of the cupcakes.
How super sweet are these Eiffel Tower cupcakes with hidden messages? The best part is that they add that next level uniqueness without breaking the bank or taking days of your time to create. In fact, you can whip them up in a couple of hours. If you want to make them in advance, freeze your cupcakes after they are iced and leave your chocolate Eiffel Towers frozen separate. Then simply defrost the cupcakes and top with your chocolates an hour before serving.
