Butterfly Cupcakes

Items Needed:

  • Cupcakes
  • Frosting
  • Froot Loops
  • Candy eyes
  • Gum drops
  • String licorice
  • Large marshmallows


  1. Frost your cupcakes with the desired color of frosting.
  2. Stand 5 - 6 Froot Loops in a row down center of cupcake for the body.
  3. Put the candy eyes onto the gum drop with a dab of icing.  I just used a toothpick to put it on and press the eyes into place.
  4. Poke 2 small holes with a toothpick or cake tester into your cupcake where you want the antennaes to go.  Cut your string licorice into 1 – 1 ½ inch pieces.  Push the licorice into the holes.
  5. Cut large marshmallows with a scissors into 4 circles.  Place the sticky side down into some colored sanding sugar.  Place wings onto the cupcake to complete your butterfly.
