The recipe for the glow buttercream is quite simple. You need butter, powdered sugar, and vitamin B2 (also known as Riboflavin). Optionally you can add flavouring, like vanilla extract.

Vitamin B2 is neon yellow in blacklight.

Vitamin B2 is UV reactive and will glow neon yekkiw in blacklight (ultraviolet light). Crush a vitamin B2 supplement, mix it with some water, strain the water, and add it to your recipe.

So much sugar!

While vitamin B2 is quite bitter, powdered sugar isn't! These glow cupcakes will be super sweet, so don't worry about the taste of the vitamin B2!
