Patriotic Penguin Cupcakes

Here’s a little holiday weekend treat suggestion from the Penguin Post. These fun penguin cupcakes will make for a fun, cool desert  after your 4th of July BBQ.   Use doughnut holes to form the penguin and then dip them in melted chocolate frosting. Then they are ready to decorate with appropriate candies or red, white and blue sprinkles for that patriot penguin look.

Attach donut holes to an unfrosted cupcake of any flavor. Frosting is the mortar that holds the shapes together. Once the whole structure is finished, place in the freezer until frosting is firm.

Place chocolate frosting in a 1- to 2-cup microwavable measuring cup. Microwave for 5 to 10 seconds until it’s the consistency of lightly whipped cream.

Hold the cupcake by its bottom and dip the top in the melted frosting up to the edge of the paper liner.

Lift the cupcake and allow the excess frosting to drip off.

Quickly turn the cupcake upright. You can pop any small bubbles with a toothpick.

Get creative and use fruit chews, small candies, and dyed frosting to add finishing touches to your penguin cupcakes. Serve up for an adorable penguin treat!
