I signed up to donate my decorating skills to make another cupcake for a Birthday Dreams. They bring birthdays to homeless kids (living in shelters and temporary housing). They are an amazing charity if you're looking for a place to help out, 90% of donations go right back to the homeless. I've done a few TMNT cupcakes in the past, so I wanted to find a new design. I picked up a new cookie cutter on Amazon (cld Cute TMNT Cutter). I first bought the 4 inch which was way too big, so I ordered the 2 inch thinking it would be just perfect. The size was ok but it was too small if you wanted to use the circle cut out's for the eyes. So my lesson to you is to buy the 3 inch cutter .. lol!

TMNT Cookie Cutter (Amazon)
Roll out your green modeling chocolate, I like mine to be on the thick side. I then cut out the face's using the cookie cutter (I made 24 total). I set these aside on some parchment paper and got to work on the mask. I made all 4 characters so I needed 6 mask total of each color. I rolled out each color and used the cookie cutter using the mask cutter. For the eyes it comes with two circles to make a white and black. My cutter was too small so I used the smaller of the two cutters to make holes to add candy eyes. I then dabbed a little water to the back of mask and attached to the green circle. I then used mouth cutter to make the smirk.
I let them sit out a while to harden up then attach to the top of my cupcakes! And your done!
Thanks for Stopping by!

Modeling Clay / Chocolate
12oz Candy Melts (In Color you need)
1/4 Cup light corn Syrup
Melt your Candy Melts in microwave (mine takes about 2 minutes). Stir them to become smooth and add the corn syrup. It will become thick and form a ball. Wrap in plastic wrap and let it sit out and dry. Takes a few hours or over night is best. (Alexis note: I found to roll this out use a little powder sugar (like you would do with flour), also you have to kneed it a little like you would dough to make it easy to roll out).
