Bo Peep's Sheep Cupcakes

While Bo Peep actually resides in Molly’s room as an adornment for the little girl’s bedside lamp, she spends plenty of time with Andy’s toys being cast in his plays as the damsel in distress. These sweet cupcakes are inspired by the porcelain sheep that belong to the little shepherdess: pink-faced ewes that stand so close together they’re sometimes mistaken for a single sheep with three heads.

How To Make It

    Meanwhile, frost the cupcakes.

  • 3

    Place three sheep heads side-by-side atop each cupcake. For ears, gently press slivered almonds into the frosting on both sides of each head.

    For eyes, apply small dots of white decorator's icing. Then use the tip of a toothpick to top them with smaller dots of black icing or gel.
