Minecraft Creeper Cupcakes

Miss V loves playing Minecraft on her iPod.  She didn't know what she wanted for her birthday cupcakes for school so we sat and looked on Pinterest for hours.  Finally she spotted these cupcakes.

You can find the free printable at The Party Animal.

For the cupcakes you will need:

Baked Cupcakes (Miss V wanted Chocolate so it would be the color of dirt)
Butter Cream Frosting
Green Food Coloring (Miss V wanted Americolor Electric Green, but it could have been a bit darker)
Toothpicks or Craft Sticks, Scissors and Tap

My favorite Butter Cream Frosting:

6 Cups Powdered Sugar
4 sticks unsalted butter, room temp
2 tsp vanilla extract
A little milk

Whisk butter in your stand mixer until smooth.  Add 1 cup of powdered sugar and mix to combine, repeat until all the sugar is incorporated.  Add the vanilla and a dash of milk.  Whisk on high for approximately three minutes until light and fluffy.  You may also use food coloring now.

Print and cut out the Creeper and the Cupcake Wrapper.  I used some Bazzil Cardstock in a bright green color and cut out squares to match the size of Creeper.  Tape a toothpick to the back of the Creeper and then I used Zig Scrapbook glue to glue on the green paper.  Hold them together for a minute or two until dry.

Place the cupcake wrapper around your baked cupcakes and tape at the seam.

Frost your cupcake anyway you want.  Make it look like grass or just swirl.  Miss V likes the swirl.

Place your Creeper on top and enjoy!





Miss V loved them and so did all her classmates.
