  • Pre-made cupcakes
  • Frosting
  • Small white gumdrops
  • Small black gumdrops
  • Large black gumdrops
  • Mini chocolate chips
  • Wooden kitchen skewer or toothpick


  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.
