These cupcakes were requested for a birthday gift. I was hesitant to make them because I make all my cupcakes from scratch but the coconut pecan frosting I used on these is store bought. It’s too much work to make the frosting and the store bought tastes great. The cupcakes and chocolate frosting is made from scratch.
These cute treats are made with red velvet cake. I had watched a video on YouTube that used Mini Oreos for the ears but my cake was too moist so the balls kept falling apart. I decided to try the candy wafers and these worked well.
A smash cake is the highlight of any toddler’s birthday party and I was happy to make this one. It is made with red velvet cake and cream cheese frosting. Since it is for a toddler, I reduced the amount of cream cheese in the frosting. The Baby Mickey edible image was ordered a couple days in advance. I trimmed the image, applied it to the cake and then piped a blue border on to the cake.
