Easter Lamb Cupcakes
I made these little lamb cupcakes for Easter and they were the perfect placemat decorations for my family. Everybody loved them and they are quick and easy to decorate.
- Serves: 12 persons
- 12unfrosted cupcakes, cooled
- 1(16 ounce) package prepared vanilla frosting
- 6large marshmallows, halved lengthwise
- 5black licorice laces
- 1(10.5 ounce) package miniature marshmallows
- 24candy eyeballs
Step 1Frost each cupcake with an even layer of frosting using a spatula or a palette knife.
Step 2Use a skewer to poke 2 holes in the top end of each marshmallow half for the ears. Poke 2 holes at the bottom of the front side for each of the nostrils.
Step 3Cut the black licorice laces into short lengths: 24 small pieces for the nostrils and thirty-six 1/3-inch lengths for the ears and tails. Stick the shorter licorice pieces into the marshmallows where you've poked holes for the nostrils. Stick 24 of the longer pieces into the marshmallows where you've poked holes for the ears. Attach 1 marshmallow head to each cupcake.
Step 4Cover the cupcakes with mini marshmallows, sticking them to the frosting flat-side down. Leave space on the opposite side of the head to attach the tail. Poke a hole there using a skewer, then stick in the remaining licorice pieces for the tails.
Step 5Spread the backs of two candy eyeballs with a bit of frosting. Attach to the marshmallow, positioning above the nose. Repeat with remaining eyeballs.
