What You Need: 1 cupcake (baked and cooled); white or off-white frosting; red food coloring (paste food coloring makes a more-vivid red than liquid; try “No-Taste Red,” as regular red coloring is one that adds a distinct taste); chocolate chips; large black gumdrop; black licorice string (or just use black writing icing); red writing icing or gel.
Make That Cupcake!: Tint icing red and frost cupcake. Using writing icing, add two red dots to gumdrop for eyes. Place gumdrop on cupcake for head. Place black licorice string or pipe writing icing along center of cupcake to divide the “wings” and finish off with plenty of chocolate chips!
