While you're here, be sure to check out my other fun cooking with kids ideas.
Red (or pink) frosting
Brown m&m's (five per cupcake)
Brown shoestring "pull n peel" licorice (I could only find red)
Frost the cupcakes with red or dark pink frosting.
Place 5 brown m&m's over the cupcake (leaving room for the gumdrop head).
Peel licorice into single strands and cut into approximately 1-inch pieces.
Using the point of a sharp knife (or a sterilized sewing pin), poke two small holes in the top of the gumdrop for the antennae.
Again, using the point of the knife or pin poke the antennae into the holes, taking care not to break the licorice. (it took me a few tries to get it right, but after I got the hang of it, it was much easier).
Place the gumdrop and antennae onto the cupcake.
Smile and enjoy!!!
