    Prepare your aliens' ears. Cut ears, shaped like teardrops, from green apple belts. A pair of kitchen shears works well, or use a small leaf shaped fondant cutter. You will need 2 ears for each cupcake.

  • 3

    Frost cupcakes and insert a 2" sour straw antenna. Press your ears into the sides of the cupcake.

  • 4

    Line up three mint-flavored, chewable candies as eyes, and dot with black gel icing for pupils.

  • 5

    Give your aliens an awed expression by drawing on a circle for a mouth with black gel icing.
