I must admit that I am pretty smitten with these guys! Given my terrible track record with ornate baked goods, I was shocked that they turned out as well as they did.
The body is a normal cupcake with a mini cupcake on top to add height. The icing effect was made by cutting the very tip off of a Ziploc baggy and randomly stringing the icing back and forth.
The eyes are so fun! They are just Dum Dums stuck through peach rings with M&M pupils.
Most importantly, they were a huge hit with my FIVE year old and his class!
