Easy Lion Cupcakes

Easy Lion Cupcakes that you can decorate in minutes! KitchenFunWIthMy3Sons.com

We came up with this super easy Lion Cupcake idea and these take just minutes to decorate!  These would be so cute to make for a animal, circus, or jungle themed party.

Easy Lion Cupcakes

Cupcakes (or your choice)
White Frosting
Yellow Food Coloring
Candy Eyes
Caramel Bits
Mini Vanilla Wafers
Chocolate Cookie Icing (Betty Crocker)
Chocolate Jimmies
Wilton Capacillos Baking Cups


Bake your cupcakes according to directions and let them cool. Add 2 drops of yellow food coloring to your white frosting and mix well. Frost the tops of the cupcakes.

Cut your mini vanilla wafers using kitchen scissors around the sides to whatever size you would like to make the ears & mouth. Add on the chocolate jimmies onto two of the mini wafer cut outs using your chocolate icing to look like whiskers.

Flatter out a caramel bit using your fingers and place it on the top of the wafers for the nose. Add on the edible eyes.

That is it...SO easy!

Easy Owl Birthday Cake

Easy Owl Birthday Smash Cake from KitchenFunWithMy3Sons.com

My cousin asked us to create a Owl Birthday Smash Cake for her daughters 1st birthday yesterday. She asked for lime green/blue for the colors and this is what we came up with!  This cake is very easy to make and we think it turned out so cute.

Easy Owl Birthday Cake

2 Betty Crocker Chocolate Cake Mixes
White Frosting (3 1/2 cups or 2 cans)
Sky Blue Food Coloring
1 Jumbo Marshmallow
2 Regular Marshmallows
Lime Green Fondant 
Orange Ice Cream Sprinkles
1 Large Tootsie Roll
Wilton Icing Tip 98

You will want to find a oven safe small bowl & casserole dish that look about the same size like this...


Make both cake mixes according to the directions. Grease the baking bowl & dish. Pour your mix in the dishes filling them a little less than half way. Bake for about 25-30 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean.  

Release the cakes onto a work surface and cut off the top to make it flat using a knife. Also cut off just a little bit off of the rounded side to prevent it from rolling. Place that piece on a plate or platter. Spread white frosting on top. Add the middle cake (from the casserole dish) on top and frost the top. Now add the last bowl cake on top and it will look like this....


Add a little bit of white frosting on the front for the belly of the owl. Then tint the rest of your frosting with the blue food coloring. Pipe the blue frosting around the entire cake using your Wilton tip. 

Cut the ends off of your jumbo marshmallow using kitchen scissors. Place your Tootsie Roll in the microwave for 8 seconds and then flatten it out on a work surface. Cut out two small circles to make pupils. Attach them on the marshmallow ends using a little bit of the frosting. Then press the eyes on the front.

Cut the other regular marshmallow in half at a angle to make ears. Press a toothpick in the ends and place them on the top sides. Cut the other marshmallow in half and add them on the sides for wings using a toothpick. Frost the tops using your blue icing. 

We used orange ice cream sprinkles for the beak & feet. You can always buy or make your own orange fondant as well....


We purchased pre-made lime green fondant from Michael's to save time. We made a bow and little triangles for accents on the front out of the green fondant.

That's it! I promise...this is so easy & such a cute little 3D Owl Cake!  We just started creating with what we had on hand, but you can change any of these things up to what you have handy.
