Cut the Rope Cookies

My older daughter (11) recently found a series of cupcake decorating videos (I Has Cupquake on YouTube), including one on making Om Nom Cupcakes (the candy-gobbling character from Cut the Rope). For her sister's 9th birthday party this weekend, she made these adorable cupcakes.

Each cupcake consists of a chocolate cupcake, a frosted mini donut, green frosting over it all, and green sprinkles. The eyes and teeth are marshmallows, the eyeballs are chocolate morsels, the smile is black frosting, and the antennae is a green Laffy Taffy. 

We also made sugar cookies decorated like candies. We used a delicious Bon Appetit recipe for holiday sugar cookies from 2000. We added string candy to the round cookies but they hardened and cracked more often than not.

My daughter has recently gotten the baking and dessert decorating bug. We are really lucky to have a speciality store in our area, Wine & Cake Hobbies, that solely focuses on supplies for cake decorating, and candy, wine, and beer making.
