White cat cupcake

This sweet cat cupcake gets its furry appeal from shaved coconut. The ears are marshmallows! You could also tint the coconut and make other colors of kitties — even calico!

What You Need: 1 cupcake; white frosting; shaved coconut; marshmallow; 2 blue mini M&Ms; chocolate sprinkles; pink jellybean; kitchen shears or scissors.

How to Make It: Frost cupcake. Sprinkle with coconut. Cut marshmallow in half, width-wise. Pinch one piece slightly to make point at end. Trim part of wide end off so the ear is shorter and more triangular. Dip sticky side in chocolate sprinkles. Repeat for other marshmallow half and place both ears near top of cupcake as shown. Add M&M eyes and jellybean nose. Select six longish chocolate sprinkles and place three on each side of nose for whiskers.

These cat cupcakes remind me of Hello Kitty’s friend Chococat. I saw a similar design online, I think made by a dad with his kids, but can’t find it now, so if you see it please let me know so I can give credit.

How to Make It: Frost cupcake. Cut mint like a pie and add two triangle shapes to top of cupcake for cat ears. Stick two 2″ pieces of licorice on either side of face for whiskers. Add two black eyes.

Cat cupcakes with graham cracker ears

What could be cuter than a batch of kitty cupcakes? These cute cats are fun for kids (or grownups) to make, and are super easy thanks to graham cracker ears, a gumdrop nose and licorice whiskers.
