I wanted to make a recipe that even my nine year old son would think was cool. When I made this glow in the dark frosting  I was pleasantly surprised that it tasted good and was really simple to do. I was upset that I didn’t know about this chemical reaction earlier because I am positive I could have made this recipe more famous while attending college but anyway I figure sharing it on the internet would be a great way to make sure others get to enjoy the glow in the dark cupcakes.
