Zoo-Themed Baby Shower Cupcakes


These adorable penguin, panda, and turtle cupcakes were created for a zoo-themed baby shower, and were a PANDAmonium of fun to create! The penguins and pandas were inspired by Karen Tack and Alan Richard’s 2008 edition of Hello Cupcake!, a book of decorating tips and tricks that are so easy to follow you could make these even without any cake-decorating KOALAfications (seriously, a MONKEY could do it!). The turtles were a special request by the big-brother-to-be, and for extra fun he helped me dye the vanilla cupcakes green. Unable to find all the candies that Tack and Richard suggest in their book, we got creative with cheerios, chocolate chips, and marshmallows–the result was a lot of fun for kids and adults alike.

All EWE need are some cupcakes, frosting, candy, and an imagination to turn any party into a TURTALLY awesome time! A great project for party animals of all ages!
