How to Make Your Cow Cupcake
- With the larger cookie cutter cut out a round of white sugar paste and cover your cupcake' If you wanted you could also cover it in green sugar paste to make it look as though your cow is in a field.
- With your smaller cookie cutter cut out a circle of white sugar paste and stick it in the middle of your cupcake using a drop of cooled boiled water as glue.
- Make 2 small pea sized balls of black icing (the ears) and stick them at the top of your cupcake so the butt up against the white circle, leaving about a 1cm gap between then. As you stick them flatten them slightly against the cupcake.
- Roll some pink icing into a ball about the size of a marble and stick it in the middle of the cupcake, flattening it slightly.
- Using a cocktail stick make 2 holes for nostrils, and using the end of a drinking straw make a smile.
- Still with the pink icing make 2 small balls and place them in the centre of each ear, flattening them slightly as you stick them down.
- With the black sugar paste make 2 tiny balls for the eyes and stick them in place, then roll a thin sausage and lay it across the top of the cows face just underneath the ears
- Make 2 small cones shapes out of white sugar paste and place them between the cow's ears for the horns
- Make a small tongue shaped piece of red icing and place it at an angle against the nose.
