Cuddle Monster Cupcakes Recipe:
Here’s What You Need—-
Boxed Cake Mix or We Also Recommend Our Yummy White Chocolate Cupcake Recipe.
Valentine’s Day M&Ms
Red Licorice (the kind that peels into little strips)
Easy Butter Cream Frosting (Recipe Below)
Prepare the cake mix as indicated for cupcakes, place the batter in Valentine’s Day cupcake liners and then bake according to the box instructions. While the cupcakes are cooling prepare this easy buttercream frosting recipe:
1/2 Cup Softened Butter
4 1/2 Cups Powdered Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
6 Tbsp Milk
Beat the butter with a mixer on medium until it’s light and creamy, add in 1 cup of powdered sugar and blend on low, add in the vanilla and milk, then add powdered sugar 1 cup at a time until it reaches frosting consistency. Divide frosting into multiple bowls (just depends how many shades of red and pink you want). Add food coloring to each bowl until you get the desired colors.
Place each of the different color frostings into an icing bag and then choose a tip (you can also just use a ziploc bag and snip off the corner). Hand each child their own bag of icing and let them go to town creating funny layering effects for their “cuddle monsters”. Next use the candy eyes, M&Ms, licorice, heart shaped cupcake picks and whatever else suits your fancy to customize the “cuddle monsters” and make them your very own.
Eat and Enjoy!
