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."
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:
- 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.
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!
