How To Make It
  • 1

    Frost the cupcakes.

  • 2

    For each bear, slice off the bottom and top of a small white gumdrop. Reserve the midsection and discard the other pieces.

  • 3

    Next, slice the top off of a Crows candy.

  • 4

    Press it onto the top of the reserved piece of white gumdrop to create the bear's muzzle and nose.

  • 5

    Press the muzzle against the side of a large black gumdrop to create the head.

  • 6

    Use a kitchen skewer or toothpick to poke eyeholes in the head.

  • 7

    Then press a mini chocolate chip into each hole, using a dab of white icing to help hold it in place.

  • 8

    Slice off and discard the very bottom of a Crows candy to create a sticky surface. Then slice the candy in half from the top down to create a pair of ears. Stick the ears to the head.

  • 9

    For a neck, slice the top off another large black gumdrop.

  • 10

    Then set the head on top of the cut surface.

  • 11

    Place the assemble bear head atop a frosted cupcake, pressing it down slightly to stick it in place.
