Marshmallow lamb cupcake

Marshmallow lamb cupcake

I like this lamb cupcake better than the marshmallow sheep I posted previously. By cutting the mini marshmallows in half (“shearing” the sheep, so to speak), you can make a cupcake that has dimension but isn’t overloaded.

What You Need: 1 cupcake; white frosting; mini marshmallows; 2 brown mini M&Ms; 2 black candy-covered licorice pieces; red gel writing icing; kitchen shears or scissors.

How To Make It: Frost cupcake. Use scissors to cut each marshmallow in half and arrange as shown, circling the entire cupcake and then a couple of rows near the top. Add M&M eyes and licorice legs and then draw in the red mouth with gel icing.

Easter sheep cupcake

Easter sheep cupcake

For Easter or anytime, try these fuzzy sheep (or lamb) cupcakes. Or, alter them to make a white dog!

What You Need: 1 cupcake; white frosting; shaved coconut (optional); white, black and pink jelly beans (we used Jelly Bellys); 2 blue mini M&Ms.

How to Make It: Frost cupcake white. Add dollop or scoop (we used a cookie scoop) to add head near center of cupcake. For sturdier head, you could frost a mini cupcake. Sprinkle with coconut. Add black jelly beans for ears, pink for nose and cover the back with white jelly beans for fleece. Add blue M&M eyes.
