Fun with Frosting Friday…Funny Faces Cupcakes!

As promised, my post today is of the Funny Faces Cupcakes I expressed my desire to make last week.  I think that they came out pretty darn cute, too!  

So just how did we make these cute little faces?


Devil’s Food Cake Mix by Duncan Hines, Pillsbury Buttercream Frosting, various colored decorator’s gels, Twizzler’s Pull-n-Peel, Cheerios, sprinkles, M&M’s, and various other candies and items you think would make good eyes, mouths, hats, etc!


  • Mix and bake Devil’s Food Cake.  NOTE: use butter instead of oil for best flavor!!
  • Allow cupcakes to cool, approx 20-30 minutes
  • Generously frost cupcakes
  • Start having some fun with decorating!
  • We had a great time giggling over the various funny face creations we came up with- using a potato chip as a cowboy hat, Life Saver fruits for ears on a dog, Cheerio hair, Twizzler mustaches, etc!

These cupcakes turned out to be MUCH easier to make than we’d anticipated & were a lot of fun.  Our finished product:

Cute, huh?!

SUGGESTION: They would be a great party game- make the cupcakes, frost them & then put out various candies & items I listed above for people to create their own funny face dessert!
