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.
