Introduction: 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

Enjoy

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
Marshmallows
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.

    Did you live in the UK? Tesco is weird, very hit and miss. Ideas for baking depend on whats in stock.

    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.
