  • 12 ounces Chocolate frosting in a piping bag
  • 48 Small sugar decoration eyes

  • Bake cupcakes per recipe and cool completely
  • Pipe a smooth layer of white frosting on cupcake
  • Place ½ a mini oreo, cream removed, on each side of the top of the cupcake to create the ears
  • Pipe 2 chocolate frosting tube shapes for eye fur below the ears.
  • Pipe a chocolate frosting nose as well
  • Then place on the candy eyes.

Cupcakes can be stored at room temperature for up to one day. Or in the fridge for 2 days. 
  • Don't like Oreos? Use your favorite round candy to make the ears.
  • Give these cupcakes as a gift or party favor by packaging them up in cellophane bags tied off with ribbon.
  • Skip the edible glitter if you don't have any on hand already.
  • Be careful to not overmix your cake mix, this would cause your cupcakes to be tough. Mix until just combined.
  • Be sure to allow your cupcakes to completely cool before you start frosting them.
