Because I'm mature like that.
Anyway, I thought I might go the route of mini cupcakes to simulate the pixelated style of the video game. Plus mini cupcakes are divine. I figured I could line them all up and ice them in the form of a Creeper.
I guess this is kind of a fail post. The concept worked out nicely, however there were a few technical issues. The first thing was that I didn't put enough batter in each cupcake. Being able to see the white liners makes the whole thing look a little disjointed.
Then I made all of the different color icings and intended to put them in zipper bags, snip a corner, and pipe a standard swirl in order to make light work of the decorating. Well that was all good, except I used my cheap bags in an effort to get rid of them and they split at the seems. So I ended up icing each individual cupcake with a toothpick.
I just happened to have this perfectly sized plate! I made all of these with one box of cake mix (and enough leftover to make a mini cake).
Black, grey, and dark green icing complete.
Tah dah! I definitely made the grey and the darkest green a little too deep. I felt like the eyes and mouth didn't stand out as much as they could, so I cut some black construction paper to sit underneath.
And this was the final product. Like I said, it's a starting point. But I do always let Hubs be my cake guinea pig.
He never minds.
