Anyways since the party was centered around animals I made animal cupcakes. I was going to do a bunch of different animals but this project was slightly larger than I expected so I only made frogs and parrots. I also made faces of the birthday girls (there was another little girl whose b-day was the day after my daughter so we decided to combine their parties.) Here is what they looked like.
here. I wanted to do animals that we would have at the party though so I made my own templates. I just searched through clip art for images I liked then I printed them off at a size to fit the cupcakes. Here is the parrot image I used.
Here is the recipe.
After I drew the image onto the paper and cut it out I traced the image onto my fondant with a food marker. (note the parrot was three separate tracings and I formed the beak by hand since it was to small to trace and cut out.)
See they turned out pretty cute right. Well at least my 3 yr old loved them.
P.S. Remember the ruffle dresses from last week, well here it a quick photo of them on my monkeys.
