Big Bug Cupcakes

Remember when I made the Pinkalicious cupcakes? Well, these cute little bug cupcakes were part of that order too (just in case the little boys that were invited didn't want a pink cupcake!). I almost forgot to share them with you! Since I only needed to make a dozen, I went on a mission to make twelve unique designs.

I think I might have been channeling the Yip Yips when I made this little guy. Remember those funny aliens from Sesame Street? (If you're ever in need of a belly-laugh, watch a few of the Yip Yip videos -- guaranteed to make you feel better!)

Here are the rest of the little guys...

  2. Oh gosh, they made me giggle like a little girl! I think its the little smiles on their faces that completes the look and makes them cute not icky!

  6. I think I like the little slug the best--so cute!

    How did you get your frosting like that? It almost looks like a flower with jagged edges. I like it.

  14. I saw your blog on Evil Cake Ladies blog and thought I'd have a look see.
    These cupcakes are just wonderful! I love how you have done them all different and each one is so whimsical! I bet the girls even wanted a bug cupcake.
    I used to watch the yip yips with my daughter when she was little (long time ago now) and we both loved them!
    If you don't mind, I am going to be looking over your blog the next couple of days and read lots of your past posts. I love a good cupcake! Cheers
