Eric Carle Cupcakes (Ladybug, Turtle & Caterpillar)

On to project #2, I did the treat bags yesterday and tonight I made cupcakes for Caden's class.  Thank God they only have 8 kids in his class so it was an easy project to make.  I made 3 different types, the Turtle, the Ladybug and the caterpillar.  I found this really cool idea on Gummy Lump Toys Blogs.

This was a super easy recipe to make, I made cupcakes but I used can frosting (I'm lazy when it comes to frosting).

What you need:

Ladybug -
Red Frosting
Black Gel Frosting
Brown M&M's
1/2 mini peanut butter cup
pearls

Tint your frosting red (I used Wilton Gel).  Add the black gel for the wings and brown M&M's for dots.  Add a 1/2 mini PB Cup for head and add the pearls for the eyes.

Turtle - 
White Frosting
Reese PB Cup
Green or White Gel
Green Candies (for head, tail & legs)

Frost the cupcake with white frosting.  Add the regular size Reese's PB Cup.  I cut green licorice for the feet and a gum drop for head and 1/4 gumdrop for tail.  I used green gel for the pattern on the shell.


Caterpillar -
Green or Brown Frosting
Green M&M's
1/4 mini peanut butter cup
Pearls

Frost the Cupcakes in green or brown.  Add the green M&M's for the body.  I added a 1/4 mini PB cup for head and pearls for eyes.



I hope you enjoy these were fun to make for the class and would be easy enough to do a Eric Carle (The Hungry Caterpillar) birthday party.

  16. Hopping over from the Pin Me hop. Love the turle cupcakes. So cute and so pinned! The title of your blog is adorable. When we were little, mom and dad told us if we ever ran away from home we could only take what we'd bought ourselves. That wasn't much! LOL Your blog reminded me of that. New follower here.
