These were sort of a disaster to make. Just being honest. I think they would have been way easier and cuter if we had used frosting instead of the cake decorating gel. If you want to make these, just remember this is suppose to be fun. The kitty cats will look silly and imperfect. If you want to make Halloween “Black” Kitty Cat Cupcakes, use chocolate frosting instead of vanilla, and chocolate marshmallows in place of the white ones (for the ears.)
To make the Kitty Cat Cupcakes:
gather your supplies…
1 box of Funfetti cake mix
black cake decorating gel
pink cake decorating gel
white mini marshmallows
line your cupcake tin with 12 cupcake liner papers…
make a “funfetti” cake mix according to package directions…
add your oil…
add your water…
add your eggs…
stir the batter until smooth…
Pour batter into cupcake paper-lined tins and bake according to the package directions on the cake box mix for cupcakes.
When cupcakes are done baking, remove them from oven and cupcake pan and allow them to cool completely.
When cupcakes are done cooling, frost them with ready-made or homemade frosting…
To decorate cupcakes:
Cut mini marshmallows in half, on the diagonal, to create 2 pointy cat ears. Place these on the cupcake. Use green M&Ms to create eyes, and a little black cake decorating gel for the pupils. Use Pink cake decorating gel for the inside of the cat ears and the nose, and use black decorating gel to make whiskers and mouth.
Good luck! This was the best we could do! 🙂
Enjoy, and have fun!
