Nyan Cat Cupcakes

Picture of Nyan Cat Cupcakes
I made these cupcakes based off Nyan Cat. Don't know who Nyan Cat is? Go to the website ( - Thanks to cowscankill for the URL!) or see video below:

They're white cupcakes with a cookie, frosting, sprinkles, and fondant on top.

A looooooooooooonnnnnnnnnnnngggggg time. I think it took me about 4 hours to complete.

You will also need these:

check it out!

Also, thanks for the recipe! I made them for a dear friend and everyone loved them! :) I much prefer making things from scratch.

For how to use up the extra yolks, check out this site:
I found that just spooning the colours in (and NOT touching them or spreading them) gave a very nice rainbow effect. I also greased the pan with butter instead of using liners (I hate those things, you lose half the muffin when you unwrap them!!).

I LIEK NYAN :D Nice cupcakes. Mind if I take an image and post it on Nyan's everywhere there.
nhathy (author)  Jimmacle3 years ago
Sure. Just link back to this Instructables and send me a link to where you post it. If you could give a shout out about voting on it (voting starts tomorrow), that'd be even more awesome! :)

I can't post the link ("kids" game doens't allow outside links), but I'll put your username on it, and tell them to vote. Also, vote for my project in the LED contest!
Adorable and awesome, but for the record, 4 hours is nothing in cake-time. I'm not sure I've ever made any decorated item in less than a half day. My competition show cakes typically take 2 months of full days, 7 days a week, which is why they're on styro dummies!

4 hours is an awesome short project! Also: want to nom teh kitteh. ;)
Your website is, in a word: Spectabulous!!!!

The widdle one is just too cute for words! ;-)

Wow! That's such a long time for one cake! You have such dedication! Thanks for the insight!

Most of the cupcakes I've made take 1 - 2 hours to make so 4 hours seemed like forever! >_<

Soo... Where's the poptart?
nhathy (author)  sockeye1013 years ago
I thought actual poptart would taste weird with cupcakes. So I substituted the poptart with a square sugar cookie with frosting and sprinkles.

You're welcome to try making some of your own cupcakes and put a poptart on top. If you do, lemme know how it tastes! :P
