Alien Cupcakes




About: Jack of all trades, master of none. Father, husband, creator.

Here is a quick and simple recipe for Alien Cupcakes. I made these for my son the other day upon his request


Step 1: What You Will Need....

The recipe I used is as follows.

1 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter
2 eggs
2tsp vanilla
1 1/2 flour
1 3/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup of milk

You'll also need
Icing sugar
Green food coloring
and some soft black candy

You could also use any other recipe for the base, up to you

Step 2: Stiring Up the Galaxy

Cream sugar and butter. Add eggs and vanilla.

Combine flour and baking soda

Add to mixture

Stir in Milk

cook 175c for 30 minutes

Step 3: A Head Is Born

Place a large marshmallow in the middle of the cupcake.

I used a little icing to keep it in place.

Step 4: Thick Green Skin

Mix some icing sugar and water till you have a mixture consistent with syrup.

Add green food coloring till you find your desired color

Step 5: Pour It On

Pour the icing over the marshmallows till fully coated

Step 6: It's Alive

Once the icing is almost hard, decorate with your candy.

I molded the eyes with my fingers and just cut pieces to size for the antennas 

I hope you enjoyed these simple alien cupcakes, I know my son did.

    Looks like your son thinks they are out of this world. very simple to make. Good job

    I studied abroad in Ireland for a few months a few years ago. I would always stock up on cheap food (usually these soup packets and Tesco pizzas) whenever I got a chance to go.
