Fanciful cupcakes are easier to make than you might think. For a cat lover these kitty cupcakes will be a delight. Using baked cupcakes, candy and store-bought frosting you can make a batch of cat cupcakes in less than an hour. This cupcake design is simple enough for children to do, but the finished product makes it a suitable project for adults, too. Use your favorite colors to create your own cat cupcakes featuring feline faces.

Things You'll Need

  • White cake frosting
  • Food coloring
  • Baked and cooled cupcakes
  • Icing spatula or spreader
  • Brown or black cake decorator gel icing with applicator tip (optional)
  • Black rope licorice
  • Jelly beans
  • Round cookies
  • Combine white cake frosting with food coloring to create the color desired for the cat's fur. To make a black cat, skip this step and use chocolate frosting. To make a yellow cat, combine drops of yellow food coloring with the frosting and mix. Add more food coloring until the desired color is achieved.

  • Spread a thick layer of cake frosting on top of each of the cupcakes, smoothing it with the icing spatula. Use 1 to 2 tbsp. of icing per cupcake.

    Draw strips across the cupcakes with the brown or black decorator gel icing if you would like to create a striped cat face.

  • Cut the licorice rope into six pieces measuring 2 to 3 inches long for each cupcake.

  • Press the licorice into the bottom, center portion of the cat face to resemble whiskers. Use three licorice pieces per side and angle the licorice slightly.

  • Place a jelly bean in the center where the licorice pieces meet to create a nose for the cat.

  • Affix two jelly beans of the same color above the nose and whiskers to make the cat's eyes.

  • Cut each cookie into quarters.

  • Place two quarters at the top of each cat face with the points pointing away from the cupcake to make the cat's ears.
