This would be perfect for a Pizza party or any other event, watch as your friends and family gobble these down faster that that slice of pizza.=]
- Cake mix / pre-made cupcake
- Frosting (white)
- Starburst and gum drops or anyother candy goodness you have on hand
- Gel Food Coloring
- cutting board
- regular sized straw and an extra large sized straw
Step 1: BASE
if there is a mound on your cupcake cut it off so that it is even.
To make the base of the pizza, simply mix your white frosting with red food coloring gel to create a saucy tomato sauce and frost the cupcake.
(You are suppose to wash your hands but when working with candy or other materials, make sure your hand is super clean so that minor dirt wil not show up in the material)
To make the crust began with two yellow starburst with one orange starburst in the microwave for 10-15 second, keep your eyes on it so it won't burn.
mix these together by twisting it into one another. when it is all mixed up roll it in your palm to make a long snake looking piece. then wrap that around the cupcake to create the crusty goodness.
Step 2: TOPPINGS!
For this part use your imagination and any candy will work.=]
CHEESE : starburst microwaved(10 secs), flattened, cut into strips.
PURPLE ONION: purple gum drops flattened, cut out with large straw and poke a regular sized straw in the middle to create a donut, then cut in half
PEPPERONI: flattened cherry starburst and cut with larger straw.
RED BELL PEPPER: flattened red gum drop cut into pieces
OLIVES: the centers of the cut onion (when i placed it on the cupcake i dabbed a bit of black frosting on top)
