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?

Ingredients:

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!

Directions:

  • 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!
