Penguin Cupcakes:

What’s Needed

 

–         6 Cupcakes (either store-bought or made at home)

–         6 Oreo Cookies

–         1 Can White Frosting

–         Orange Candy Melts

–         1 Cup Shredded Coconut

–         Edible Candy Eyes

 

Directions to make these Penguin Cupcakes:

 

Frost cupcakes with the white frosting. Then, take the cupcake, turn it upside down and dip it into the coconut. Set it back on the pan and pat the coconut down gently. You could also just sprinkle the coconut on as well.

Take the Oreo cookies and gently twist apart. Take the halve without the frosting and cut in half. Take the Oreo with the frosting and scrape out a small V-shape.  Take a candy melt and cut into fourths. You’ll need 3 pieces per cupcake.

To make the face, add 2 eyes under the “V” shape on the frosted Oreo. 

Take one piece of the orange candy melt and place under the eyes to represent the beak. Place a whole candy melt towards the back of the cupcake, this will allow the face to stay up and not fall down. Place a Penguin face in front of the candy melt and push down into the cupcake.

 

Take the Oreo halves and place one on each side of the cupcake to represent the wings/feathers. Then stick 2 pieces of the candy melts on the bottom of the cupcake to represent the feet.

Have fun and enjoy your Penguin cupcakes!!
