Mario Birthday Cupcakes! Treasures and Trinkets Linky Party!
It’s that time again…..Treasures and Trinkets Linky Party! Link up something you love and link back to my blog….that’s it! Now have some fun! I KNOW, SO easy!
I have so much to show you guys! My son’s Mario party went great and he had such a wonderful time! I thought I’d show you some of the fun things we did over the next couple of days and give you some ideas you could use to have a Mario party of your own.
Let’s do a tutorial to make these adorable Mario mushroom cupcakes! I saw this on pinterest somewhere, but can't find who to give credit to...if you know, let me know!
First I started with some yummy double fudge cupcakes….
Then I bought these little flower pots from the Dollar Tree. I also picked up some lollipop sticks.
I have to say, I had so much going on, I decided to cheat and use a canned icing. I don't really like the taste of this stuff, but 10-12 year old boys could care less, so I went with it!
I used a Wilton gel food coloring to color the icing green…..
This is the nice green color my icing ended up being.
I used an icing bag and piped the green icing onto my double fudge cupcakes…
I bought some brownie bites from Walmart for the mushroom tops….
See, they have the perfect little mushroom shape…
Next, I took some large sized marshmallows………
and used this food grade marker….
to do this………….
Next, you take the marshmallow heads and push them down on your lollipop sticks….leave a little piece of the stick poking out the top, like this…..
This is where you will stick the brownie top on……
Ain’t he cute?!
I used some white icing in a piping bag…..
to add the spots on the mushroom head, like this………….
Now you take your little flower pots…
Stick two marshmallows in the bottom of each pot to help raise your cupcakes up to the top. (this only shows one marshmallow, but put two side by side or your cupcake will wobble)
Place your cupcakes inside your little flower pots….
Then you stick your lollipop down in your cupcake….
This is what you’ll end up with….
I only made 10 of the flower pot mushroom cupcakes, the rest I did the following to……….
Hope you enjoyed the tutorial on the Mario Mushroom cupcakes!
Have a great day!
