I got this idea to make these from the book What's New, Cupcake? They were made from cake mix, frosting, caramel, dates, cornflakes, and M&M's.

Step 1: Take your mini cupcakes and frost them with chocolate icing.

Step 2: Microwave about 6 caramels at a time for about 10 seconds on high. After that flatten the squares of caramel out, then cut to desired shape which is wings.

Step 3: Form the wings and dates together to make a cockroach body. Next, cut a brown M&M in half, then place it at the very front tip of the date and wings. Place a few spoonfuls of chocolate icing in a ziploc baggie and make a tiny cut on the tip of the bag. Squirt out two lines of frosting onto the body to make the antennas.

Step 4: Now, place the cockroaches onto the cupcakes. Add a few cornflakes here and there to represent trash. Also, you can make about 12 roaches and leave the other 12 mini cupcakes to just put cornflakes on them.

Good Luck!

These things kinda look like the floating robots the Master brought back from the future in &quot;Doctor Who.&quot; Haha too cool!
Glad to hear!
