My sweet daughter turned 4 in January. We had a penguin party to celebrate! Instead of cake we had cupcakes. These little cupcakes were so cute and fairly easy to assemble. I made a white cupcake and frosted the top with vanilla icing as the base. For the penguins I used:
...Oreos, chocolate chips and Sunkist fruit snacks. I opened the little packages of fruit snacks and took out all the orange ones. My kids snacked on the rest.
I carefully opened up the Oreos, putting aside the cookie only part for later. The icing part became the face base.
I cut the fruit snacks into 3 pieces each. One piece became the beak. The eyes were chocolate chips.
I carefully broke the cookie piece of the oreo in 2, these became the wings. The trickiest part was making sure the pieces stayed sticking up. I used a knife to cut a slit to stick the pieces in, this worked. The remaining cut fruit snack pieces became the feet. I placed all the cupcakes on a foil lined tray and then sprinkled powdered sugar over everything to make it look like snow. Very cute and the kids loved them!
