Turtle Cupcakes

I was asked to make 48 cupcakes for a baby shower the theme was sea and turtles. So on the hunt I went for turtle cupcakes and found a few easy ones all of the same design so I'll just give one I found the most. Wonderful DYI had a great step by step.


You’ll need:-Cupcakes
-Frosting
-Sour Peach Gummy ring candies
-Red and green gum drop candies
-Spearmint Leaves candies
-Mini chocolate chips
-Toothpick or kitchen skewer
-Oval fondant cutter
Instructions:1. Bake cupcakes and frost them
2. For the turtle shell: Place a gummy ring on each cupcake. Slice off the bottom half of a red gum drop and place the top half at the center of the gummy ring. Push the gum drop into the frosting so it will stick.
3. For fins, slice a Spearmint Leaves candy in half. Using a oval fondant cutter, cut each half into two pieces (shown far right). Use the curled pieces for the front fins and the thicker pieces for the hind fins.
4. For the head, poke a hole into the sides of a green gum drop using a toothpick or kitchen skewer. Push mini chocolate chips into the holes for the turtle’s eyes. Use a dab of frosting to hold the eyes in place. Place the head onto the cupcake and slightly push into the frosting so it will stick.
ALEXIS NOTES: I had a heck of a time finding some of the candy, I even went to Winco which has a HUGE bulk section. So I winged it and used a circle cookie cutter to cut out the legs and made them the best I could!
