Aren't these just the cutest thing you've ever seen? Not only are they perfect for any spring occasion, they are easy and cheap to make, only taking an hour start to finish! For some added fun, dye a few mini-marshmallows black so you can create a "black sheep" too!

Adorable sheep cupcake recipe

Adapted from Land O' Lakes

Yields 24 cupcakes


  • 1 box of your favorite cake mix and ingredients to make (we used banana)
  • 1 jar creamy vanilla frosting
  • 1 bag mini-marshmallows
  • 24 Ferrero Rondnoir candies
  • White cupcake icing gel
  • 42 mini-chocolate chips
  • 1 bag black licorice



Mix & bake cupcakes

Mix the cake mix with the ingredients called for in a large mixing bowl. Fill cupcake liners 2/3 full. Bake for the time called for on the box. Let cool completely on a wire rack.



Frost & add marshmallows

Once cupcakes are completely cooled, frost with the creamy vanilla frosting.



Add the mini-marshmallows to the frosting and cover it completely.



Leave a space open for the head.


Add head, eyes and ears

Place a Ferrero Rondnoir candy onto the spot you left open.


Using your white decorating gel, place two small dots for eyes. Stick mini-chocolate chips into the white to make the pupils.


Poke two little holes on the top of the candy for the ears.


Cut the licorice into small pieces and stick into the holes to make ears.



Add tail & enjoy!

Cut a little licorice piece and stick into the back of the cupcake for the tail.
