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
1 1/2 flour
1 3/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup of milk
You'll also need
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.
