Polar Bear Cupcakes!

I had a special request from a special someone.  For her birthday she wanted Polar Bear cupcakes.  How could I say no?  Sure I can make those!  Right?  Um...A google search followed and I found over a hundred pictures of polar bear cupcakes.

But here's the catch...She doesn't like coconut! On to another search!  I found a great picture but no tutorial.  I'm going to attempt to show you how to make polar bear cupcakes!  Because I was short on time I used packages cupcakes and pre-made frosting.  Feel free to make these from scratch!

You'll need:
Cupcakes
White Frosting
large and small marshmallows
black decorating or chocolate frosting with decorator bag
Clean scissors

DIY decorator bag:  Take a ziploc baggie, fill the corner with frosting and snip of the tip.

Begin by frosting you cupcakes with white frosting.  Take a large marshmallow and cut in half for the nose. Place the marshmallows on the cupcake before you draw the nose.  Use the black decorating gel or chocolate frosting and draw the nose.  Use the small marshmallows for the ears.  I cut those in half also so they didn't stick out so far.

Use the black decorating gel or chocolate frosting again to make eyes for the bear.

This one looks a little angry!
That's it!  If I can do it so can you!  While I was in cupcake mode I made a few other funky cupcakes which I'll share throughout the week.  Enjoy!
