Homemade Pig Cupcakes
I made pig cupcakes for the birthday party and I thought I’d pass on the idea. At Easter I had made very similar bunny cupcakes that I saw on the Family Fun website. When I found pink marshmallows at the store I knew I needed to alter the recipe and make pigs. I used pink frosting on strawberry cupcakes and used M&Ms for the eyes and made the ears and snout out of the marshmallows. To make the ears use a kitchen scissors to cut the marshmallows in half diagonally (sort of make 2 triangles or wedges if that helps) and then dip the cut sides into pink sugar (if you ever make the bunny cupcakes do your ears my way also). If they seem too big you can cut some off the bottom of the ears. To make the snout just cut the marshmallow in half width wise and stick on brown mini M&Ms to the cut side (I used mini chocolate chips because I forgot to buy the mini M&Ms). Very easy and you can make the ears and snouts ahead of time.
Family Fun also has their own pig cupcakes but I like the ones I made better!
*Let me know if you give these a try! I see lots of people visit this post and wonder how many make them.
I’m also adding a picture of the goodie bags we made (all the pig ones were gone though).
