Firecracker wanted a princess birthday party and princess cupcakes to take to her class. I convinced her that maybe it would be more fun to do different for the two...meaning I wasn't all that enthusiastic about making princess cake/cupcakes at all, much less twice in a week...and all the kids she was inviting to her party are in her class. And anyway, this one looks like it could be a princess, don't you think?
They were really very easy to make. You don't need anything special to make them...just frosting, food coloring, freezer bags, and google eyes. The directions called for one regular cupcake and one mini cupcake for each monster, which I made. (I always raid the kid's play kitchen for their muffin tin to make mini-cupcakes...it's a real one.) If I were to do this again though, I'd save myself the trouble of the mini ones and use mini-Reese's peanut butter cups in place of the minis.
