Werewolf Cupcakes

The moment I saw these werewolf cupcakes in the book Hello, Cupcake, I knew I just had to try them!

They are just too stinkin' cute, and I knew that my kids would love them. I was right.

HUGE hit!

Take a peek below to learn how to make them.

For each werewolf cupcake you'll need:

  • 2 large marshmallows,
  • 2 matching color M and M's,
  • and a black jellybean.

You'll also need:

  • One tub of vanilla frosting,
  • two tubs of chocolate frosting,
  • and red fruit roll-ups for 12 of these cute critters.

To make the ears, snip a marshmallow in half diagonally. For the muzzles, cut a 1/2 to 1-inch v-shaped notch from the end of a marshmallow. The size of the notch will determine the size of the mouth.

Attach the ears to the top sides of each cupcake with a dot of chocolate frosting.

Cut 1 to 2-inch ovals from the fruit roll-ups to fit the notched mouth openings and press into the notches of the muzzles to stick. Trim off any excess with scissors. Attach the muzzle just below the center of the cupcake with frosting.

Using a decorating bag, pipe several lines of chocolate frosting along the length of the ears to cover. Starting at the edge, pipe a 1/2-inch border around the cupcake by squeezing the bag, releasing the pressure, and pulling away from the center. Pipe another row inside the first, slightly overlapping the rows. Continue with this method, covering the cupcake and working your way up the marshmallow snout to the open mouth.

Press two M and M's of a matching color, at an angle, into the frosting to make glowing eyes.

Using a decorating bag fitted with a small tip, pipe vanilla frosting "fangs" all around the edge of the fruit roll-up using a squeeze and pull motion. Add a black jellybean, crosswise, for the nose.
