DIY Panda Cupcakes #Disneyside
How does your family show their Disneyside? It’s Disney party season again! After last year’s DIY Finding Nemo Party success, I knew I had to create another FUN Disney party to celebrate the 2015 #Disneyside celebration! So today, I’m sharing just a small portion of my Disney themed party with these easy DIY Panda Cupcakes. Can you guess our party theme yet?
Make cupcakes according to package instructions. When completely cool, frost with white frosting.
Unwrap chocolate kisses. Using two kisses, place pointed side down into the cupcake to use as eyes for your panda.
Place one kiss as a triangle nose. How cute is the panda already?
Make a panda mouth using the black gel.
Using the white gel, create the white of the eyes in the center of the top 2 kisses.
Use the black gel to finish up the eyes.
Then just untwist a mini Oreo and use chocolate side up as ears for your panda. DONE!
Here’s the printable recipe for easy reference!
- 12 cupcakes (I used chocolate cake mix)
- 1 tub of white frosting
- 1 bag of chocolate kiss candies
- 1 bag of mini Oreos
- White edible gel
- Black edible gel
