Animal Cupcake Designs

Just take a look at these Animal cupcake designs, how delicious do they look.

Now cupcake decorating – What a great way to completely waste an afternoon!

So easy to make, but super fun and effective.

All you need is icing, food colouring, marshmallows, chocolate buttons and chocolate chips. Oh and don’t forget some cupcakes.











You can make any animal you like so use your imagination.

We’ve used marshmallows and buttons but you could use coconut or grated chocolate for a fur effect.

If you want different coloured icing, mix up a larger batch and seperate into small bowls.

That way you can make lots of different colours. Yellow for a duck, blue for a monster, green for a frog. The list is endless.

The pig – these need a teeny bit of red food colouring for the icing. Mine could have done with a bit more, it was sort of peachy instead of pink. Cut a marshmallow in half for the ears, use a whole one for the nose. Use mini ones for the eyes, and then use the chocolate chips for the final details.
The cow is pure chocolate icing, a chocolate button with a corner cut off for the ears. Mini marshmallows for the horns and the eyes and nose detail is the same as the pig.
The sheep are just plain vanilla icing, a white chocolate button quarter cut out for the ears. Cover them completely in marshmallows for the fur and again chocolate chips for the eyes.
The teddies can be made using any icing flavour and its features are made up entirely of milk and white chocolate buttons. Use chocolate drops for the little details.

Go on give them a try and tag me so I can see what animals you have tried!
