Cupcake decorating ideas: Monster

We’ve whipped up a month’s worth of decorating ideas for our 30th birthday, because we think every day calls for adorable desserts!


Cover cupcake with red glaze icing, then dip into red-coloured sugar to coat. Cut two short pieces of black licorice lace, then attach pea–sized balls of red taffy candy to one end of each. Stick the other ends into top of cupcake. Attach a brown mini M&M onto a white Necco wafer with a dab of icing. Place in centre of cupcake. Use a small piece of black licorice lace for the mouth.
