These cupcakes are a creative and simple way to show Dad you've been thinking of him. The cupcakes are simply frosted with blue buttercream, but neckties made from taffy add a whimsical touch and may have Dad asking for multiple ties this Father's Day!
You can use any kind of stretchy candy that can be molded and shaped to create the ties. I used a Smarties taffy.
Start by cutting out 18 pieces of taffy that are 1 inch long by 1/2 inch wide.
Use a paring knife to trim each piece into the bottom portions of your ties.
Now cut out 18 pieces that are about 1/2 inch by 1/4 inch.
Place the small rectangle on the top of a tie, and fold under the bottom corners of the rectangle to form the knot.
Use a star tip to pipe the buttercream onto your cupcakes, and then place a tie on the center of each.
