Here’s a fun project I did for a little guy’s 2nd Birthday. I am loving how they turned out 🙂 I used the Funfetti Birthday Cupcakes recipe and the vanilla buttercream recipe that I make with all of my cupcakes. You’re going to need a lot (and I mean A LOT) of red food coloring – you can’t use the liquid kind from the grocery store (it will change the taste of the frosting if you use a lot) but instead use the Wilton Gel Food Coloring. To complete the face you’ll need orange peanut m&m’s for the nose, Oreo’s for the smile, mini marshmallows and mini chocolate chips for the eyes. To create the fur I used a decorating tip like Wilton Tip #233 – sometimes called the Grass Tip. This was a lot of fun to make so if you have an Elmo fan in your house, they are really worth it! Please excuse the boring pictures, I didn’t want to take these guys out of the carrying cases before delivery. Happy Tuesday night!
