King of the Jungle cupcakes!!

We had a great time yesterday whipping up some cute lion cupcakes! Here is what you need to make your own:





Two VERY enthusiastic stirrers :)




One VERY impatient cupcake watcher :)


Once those two important jobs have been done, you frost your cooled cupcake with white frosting and use frosting to make eyes and a mouth. Skylar had the brilliant idea to use sprinkles to make whiskers....a girl after my own heart!





Once you've made the face you take caramel popcorn and add it all around the cupcake, creating the lions mane. I made these a few years ago and used corn pops for the mane and it worked as well. I just happened to have some yummy caramel popcorn laying around this time :)





And here is what you have once you finish the mane. Isn't he too cute?!






We used these last night for a family home evening about prayer where we talked about Daniel and the Lion's Den, but they would be adorable for any jungle themed party or just because! I loved these also because the kids could really get involved!












I love cooking with the kids, they get so excited about the littlest things. I hope you all have a fantastic day and thanks SO much for stopping by! :)
