Ingredients


Baking Instructions

  1. Spoon the vanilla frosting into a ziplock bag. Tint the dark chocolate frosting black with the food coloring. Spoon half of the black frosting (about 1/2 cup), up one side of a ziplock bag. Spoon half of the Classic Chocolate frosting (about 3/4 cup) up the other half of the bag. Repeat process with another ziplock bag.
  2. Cut 1 inch corners from each side of the 12 marshmallows to make the ears. Cut a 1/2 to a 1 inch V shape notch from the remaining 12 marshmallows to make the muzzles (see step photo). The size of the notch will determine the size of the howling mouth.
  3. Snip a small corner (1/8 inch) from the bag with the chocolate frostings. Pipe a small dot of chocolate frosting to attach the marshmallow ears and muzzle on top of the cupcakes. Cut 2 inch ovals from the red fruit leather and press onto cut notch of marshmallow muzzles to stick. Trim any excess fruit leather.
  4. Pipe several vertical lines of chocolate frosting to cover the marshmallow ears. Starting along the outer edge of cupcakes, pipe the fur, about 1/2 inch in from edge to go completely around cupcake. Pipe another row of fur in from first row, slightly overlapping. Continue piping rows of fur with the chocolate frosting to cover the cupcake and marshmallow just up to the red fruit leather. Continue with remaining cupcakes and chocolate frosting.
  5. Add 2 like colored M&M's, pressing them lengthwise, into the frosting at an angle to make the glowing eyes. Snip a very small corner (1/16 inch) from the bag with the vanilla frosting and pipe fangs all around the mouth at the edge of fruit leather using a squeeze and pull motion. Add the black jellybean to make the nose.

Tips

baking large cakes

baking large cakes

I use only Duncan Hines cake mixes for cakes that I decorate! A useful tip for when you are baking larger cakes so that the whole cake gets done at the same time. I use a rose tip nail (used in cake decorating) and place it in the middle of the batter. That way it attracts the heat from the cake pan as well as the nail and the whole cake bakes to doneness at the same time.


Flavorings

Flavorings

If you want to jazz up a yellow or white cake batter, use liquor or any of the bottled coffee flavorings. I use up to three tablespoons and it lends a great flavor. Be sure to use a frosting that has a compliment flavor or use the same in it.
