Use the black color to tint chocolate frosting black. Color about ½ cup of the white frosting purple.
Frost all the cupcakes black and use the purple frosting to make swirls around on top the black frosting.
Put one large yellow gumball on each cupcake to resemble the sun.
Put 4 or 5 small gumballs or candies to resemble planets, make sure you use different colors, so they look like different planets. An optional step I did was to use a short piece of red rope licorice to wrap around a small gumball to look like Saturn.
Sprinkle the little stars and tiny white rocks around on each cupcake to look like stars and meteors.
Enjoy these fun galaxy cupcakes!
