Perry the Platypus Cupcakes

I made these cupcakes for a very special little birthday boy. The cupcake on the left is chocolate, the one on the right is vanilla. Both cupcakes themselves are vegan and both have vegan buttercream frosting (recipes were from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over The World).

The eyes are made from white candy melts with melted semi-sweet chocolate for the pupils. The duckbills and tails are made from circus peanuts (rolled out with a rolling pin and then I used a knife to cut the marks into the tail), both versions of Perry have the same tail but it is hard to see it on the version on the left. The body of Perry on the left is made using a blue AirHead candy piece and the body on the left is just buttercream frosting with teal food coloring added to get the color.

All the kids faces lit up when they saw the cupcakes.

  1. Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in
    your article seem to be running off the screen in Safari.

    I'm not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I figured I'd post to let you know.
    The style and design look great though! Hope you get the
    issue resolved soon. Cheers

  8. First of all I would like to say great blog!
    I had a quick question in which I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your head before writing. I have had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there. I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints? Appreciate it!

  12. I think that what you said made a bunch of sense. But, what about this?

    suppose you were to write a awesome headline?
    I am not suggesting your content isn't solid, but suppose you added a post title that grabbed people's
    attention? I mean "Perry the Platypus Cupcakes" is kinda plain.
    You ought to glance at Yahoo's front page and note how they write post headlines to get viewers interested. You might add a related video or a related pic or two to grab readers excited about what you've got to say.
    Just my opinion, it might make your blog a little livelier.
