Last week I gave you a preview of a cupcake I was working on and today I show you how mine turned out. I really loved how these turned out! I signed up for a little 4 year old's homeless girls birthday. I LOVE this charity Birthday Dreams and if you're every looking to send gifts or money they are an amazing charity. They bring birthday's to homeless kids! It's all run on donations of time and money. My contribution is cakes!
Here are the Dora the Explorer Cupcakes I made. I saw several designs on Google of Dora's face but I wanted to do something a little different. I found this Star (for the Star's she uses) and the Number shape found this idea on One Sweet Treat.
What you need:
Modeling Chocoalte (I used Pink, Blue and Yellow)
Star Cookie Cutter
# Cookie Cutter (She was turning 4 so I used 4)
Candy Hearts Sm (For Mouths or can use red pen to draw on)
Candy Writer Pen Black (also could use brown and red if wanted)
Make your modeling chocolate (see recipe below if you haven't made before). I roll out with some powder sugar like you would with flour. Roll out, I like mine on the thick side, and use your star cutter to cut out the stars (I made 8 stars of each color). For the stars I added some Candy Eyes (using water to secure them to the modeling chocolate). I then added a small heart for the mouth, you can draw on with red food marker if you want. I then took my black candy writer (food marker) and drew on they eyebrows.
For the Numbers I cut out in the modeling chocolate. I took my black candy writer to make dashes on the opening of the 4. you can get creative and go around the outline of the # if you want. Do what you have time for and what you feel looks best.
Thanks for Stopping by!
