For all you cat lovers and cupcake lovers out there...here you go....
You'll need - Cupcakes - yum!
3 Nonpareils per cupcake
6 - 1 1/2" pieces of Twisted Twizzlers (not as good as the real stuff - but works well here!)
2 Yellow M & M's (Yellow - are more believable - but Blue and Brown might work just as well!)
Regular Frosting (Frosting tip and bag for the nose and mouth - or a can)
Chocolate Frosting (The tube you throw in the microwave and melt the chocolate - for the eyes)
Step 1: First make the eyes - so the chocolate hardens. And then break some of the Nonpareils for the ears. I found it easier to score the back of them, which breaks them nice & easy! Then cut up the twizzlers for the whiskers with kitchen shears.
Step 2: Frost the cupcakes
Step 3: Place the whiskers and then the Nonpareils towards the lower half of the cupcake.
Step 4: Place the eyes, and poke in the ears.
Step 5: Finish with the Pink frosting to make the nose and mouth shape. (My daughter's helped with this part!)
Step 6: Enjoy!
Have a great Wednesday! Meow! -kg
