Ingredients

  • 1 package Rainbow Berry Airheads
  • 1 box box Betty Crocker Fudge Brownie Mix 519g
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tbsp water
  • 1 cup unsalted butter (room temperature)
  • 2 cups icing sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 drops Wilton Sky Blue Food Coloring Gel

Instructions

  • Watch the video instructions here: https://youtu.be/SnVcf6rR1Js
  • For the full list of tools used, refer to the original blog post: http://bit.ly/2tnaZ9X
  • Line a 9x13-inch baking pan with parchment paper and lightly spray it with vegetable oil.
  • Prepare Betty Crocker’s Fudge Brownie mix according to the instructions on the box.
  • Pour the brownie mixture into the parchment lined pan. When it comes out of the oven, let it completely cool.
  • For the buttercream frosting: Mix the butter and icing sugar until combined. Add the vanilla extract and beat. Using a toothpick, add 1 drop of the sky blue icing gel at a time. The gel is very concentrated so be careful. Add frosting to piping bag with a No. 129 Wilton flower-icing tip.
  • Use the cloud-shaped cookie cutter to cut out 8 brownies.

  • Cut the Airheads Rainbow in half. Use your fingers to hold both sides of the Airheads candy so that it resembles a rainbow shape. (Watch video instructions). Dip the edges into the buttercream frosting and lightly press it onto the center for the brownie so that it forms an outline.
  • Pipe the buttercream frosting onto the brownie and add the Airheads Rainbow.
  • Lift up the brownie so that it's resting on the flat edge. The cloud-shaped brownie should be vertical.
