You don’t need any cake decorating skills or tools at all to make these adorable treats that look almost too cute to eat!

Polar Bear Cupcakes

What you need:

What to do:

  1. Spread white frosting on the surface of cupcake.
  2. Using kitchen shears, cut two thin slices off marshmallow. Cut one slice in half and use each piece for an ear. Use the second slice for the bear’s muzzle. Sprinkle shredded coconut on the remainder of the exposed frosting for “fur.”
  3. Place two candy eyes above the muzzle, and use the black decorating gel to create a rectangular nose.

Hedgehog Cupcake

What you need:

What to do:

  1. Spread chocolate frosting on the surface of cupcake. Using a piping bag or spoon to add a large dollop of frosting near the center of the cupcake for the hedgehog’s body.
  2. Attach chocolate kiss to the side of frosting for hedgehog’s snout. Insert slivered almonds into pile of frosting for hedgehog’s quills.
  3. Using black decorating gel to form eyes and nose on the chocolate kiss to finish off the face.

Rabbit Cupcake

What you need:

What to do:

  1. Spread white frosting on the surface of cupcake.
  2. Using a kitchen shears, snip two thin slices off large marshmallow and pinch one end of each slice into an ear shape. Dip a sticky side of the “ears” into pink sugar crystals. Attach ears onto cupcake by pressing into frosting.
  3. Fill a resealable plastic bag with additional white frosting and snip a hole in one corner. Squirt out frosting into two circle to form the rabbit’s cheeks.
  4. Place jelly bean in the middle above the cheeks to make the nose. Insert the chocolate chips upside down above the nose for rabbit’s eyes. Insert 2 pieces of white gum under cheeks to make the teeth.

Brown Bear Cupcake

What you need:

What to do:

  1. Spread chocolate frosting on surface of cupcake.
  2. Use a knife to trim off a small piece of each candy melt to make a straight edge. Place each chocolate melt on the top of cupcake to create ears.
  3. Using a large circular tip (or just trim a large hole in the cover of resealable bag), pipe a snout on to the bottom of the cupcake. Press chocolate chips upside down into the frosting above the snout for the eyes.
  4. Use the black decorating gel to form the bear’s nose.

I hope you enjoyed these easy cupcake decorating ideas for kids! They’re clearly not Trim Healthy Mama-friendly (though the Hedgehog and Brown Bear Cupcakes could easily be made that way with on-plan chocolate frosting and melted dark chocolate in place of the decorating gel!), but they’ll bring lots of smiles to your table. 🙂
