Here’s how you make these adorable Cheshire Cat cupcakes, courtesy of Disney Family!
What You’ll Need
A chocolate cupcake
Cupcake frosting, tinted light purple or lavender
Sour apple gummy ring
Skittles candies, 2 yellow ones for the eyes and 1 purple one for the nose
Black decorator’s gel or icing
A few chocolate sprinkles
Black or purple gumdrop
How To Make It
1 Frost half of the cupcake top, spreading the frosting in a wide arc that resembles a grin.
2 Flip over the sour apple gummy ring so the white side faces up. Cut a small section away from the top of the ring, as shown (an adult’s job).
3 Now score the candy to create wide teeth (again, adults only).
4 Place the gummy teeth on the frosted portion of the cupcake, pressing down lightly to stick the candy in place.
5 Set the candies for the nose and eyes in place, centering them on the cupcake at the upper edge of the frosting. Top each eye with a small dot of black decorator’s gel or icing.
6 For whiskers, arrange a few chocolate sprinkles on both sides of the nose.
7 For the finishing touch, cut two matching triangles from the gumdrop and use dabs of frosting to stick them in place for the ears.
