Did you see the adorable cupcakes and mini-cake for Addie’s birthday party? The body is made from a regular cupcake and the head is from a mini-cupcake turned on its side. Ears and muzzle from mini-marshmallows, eyes and nose from chocolate-covered sunflower seeds, and tongue from pink Starburst candy. I won’t say they weren’t time consuming, but I will say that they were worth the trouble! I found the how-to in this book: Hello! Cupcake. I could seriously look at this book for hours. It has so many incredible ideas. Just Love it!!
For the mini-cake, I just adapted the idea for the cupcakes into a larger version by using bigger cupcakes and regular sized marshmallows! Instead of the chocolate covered sunflower seeds or Starburst tongue, I piped on the eyes, nose, and mouth. I didn’t want her to choke! It turned out sweet! I love it when things work out like that!
