Lets get the ball rolling and start with the cupcakes I made for my daughter to take to school for her birthday. I thought of making just pretty caterpillar cupcakes but I just couldn't imagine the real boy boys in the class being overjoyed so I made some Cookie Monsters for the boys.
Check-out the Cookie Monster on the bottom, second from the right. Don't know how I missed him but he makes me laugh.
Hmm, looks like someone needs to brush up on their food colouring technique.
I made the eyes out of about 4g of sugarpaste and used black food colouring but if you don't want to use sugarpaste, mint cool fruits would be a good substitute.
I have made caterpillar cupcakes before, they were fun and easy to make not to mention extremely cute so I thought the girls would love them.
Those little tufts of grass were my husbands idea, and a pretty good one at that.
I thought I'd try something new and put some shimmer powder down their packs but unfortunetly it didn't really work out.
Well, the cupcakes went down a treat with the kids, i'm glad they enjoyed them, althought my husband was extremly (and i mean extremly) upset to hear the kids enjoyed them. He thought I had made them for our daughters family birthday party we were having the following day, he was looking forward to eating the Cookie Monsters.
