Cow cupcakes are a cute addition to a farm-themed party, or they can stand on their own as a decorative dessert. If you want to go beyond drawing icing patterns on your cupcakes, this method provides an easy way to decorate them with a raised cow face. It requires less drawing skill and you can execute it with a few common ingredients. Best of all, the decorations are made of candy and will add a tasty bonus to your cupcakes.

Skill level:

Things you need

  1. 1

    Ice the cupcakes with a smooth layer of white icing.

  2. 2

    Draw two dots of black writing icing on the centre of a pink candy wafer as nostrils. Place the candy wafer near the bottom of the cupcake's iced surface as the cow's nose.

  3. 3

    Place two small brown candies above the nose as the cow's eyes. Place two white jelly beans above the eyes as horns. Insert two larger brown candies near the top of the cow's face as ears, angling them slightly upward.
