It’s Easter time and why not do some food art and create sheep cupcakes for the occasion. Actually these are great as baby shower cupcakes or for a first Birthday too if you’re having a gender neutral theme! They are so incredibly adorable and easy to make that you could have the kids help you if you’re having a Spring party, or just for fun on the weekends. Here is how you make these sheep cupcakes. (originally published 3/16)

I start with a cake mix to make the cupcake base and go from there once they’re cooled. I chose a white cake mix this time but spice cake would be good too.

We hope you love these sheep cupcakes as much as we do.

I used a whipped marshmallow frosting (already made in the tub…we are going easy here).

I like to use the back of a spoon to smooth it on so it goes on smoother and it’s easier to do. It is a great idea when cooking with kids too, easier than a knife. Then get mini marshmallows and cut the white ones in half and pink marshmallows diagonally like this.

They are so cute you could make a basket full of them next to their Easter basket as a surprise, or fill the basket with all the items you need to make them together. Bake the cupcakes ahead of time and give each child a plastic knife with their marshmallows so once they frost their cupcake they can see it transform into a cute sheep cupcake of their own!
