Alien Cupcakes

This is an alien cupcake from Coffee with the moms YouTube channel that I made to celebrate Science Fiction Day, which is Jan. 2! It was so cute that I had to try to make it! :)

Science Fiction Day "celebrates science fiction writer Isaac Asimov's official birthday."


Attempt #1:

For the alien, there are some candy eyes, a little horn and a mouth. She uses Haribo Sour Sghetti for the horns, I had some Sour Mike and Ikes around which looked like the horns.

What I used:

- Cupcake

- White Frosting

- Green food coloring

- Candy Eyes

- Green Sour Mike and Ikes

- Black gel icing (for mouth)

- Plastic bag (for piping frosting) and Bamboo Skewers to mix frosting/gel food color (saved me from cleaning another knife in the dishwasher.)

I mixed the white frosting with green food coloring using a bamboo skewer, which has a little more surface area than a toothpick. I put the frosting in a Ziploc bag, snipped the corner & piped it onto the cupcake.

I added some candy eyes and used black gel icing for the mouth.

RESULT: Success!

We are good at this! This was a really quick fun easy project that was a great idea from the Cooking with the moms YouTube channel. It would be easy to make a bunch as she does in the video.

It looks great for Science Fiction Day :), birthdays, Halloween or other extra-terrestrial gatherings. Haha. :)

Give it a try! We are good at this!
