Servings: 12

Prep Time: 80 min.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups milk chocolate melting
  • 1 tube (4.25 oz.) brown decorating frosting
  • 1 tube (4.25 oz.) red decorating frosting
  • 1 roll strawberry or cherry fruit leather (such as Fruit by the Foot)
  • 1 can (16 oz.) prepared vanilla frosting
  • 12 Basic Vanilla Cupcakes (1/2 recipe)
  • 1/2 cup mixed colored sprinkles (orange, blue, and green)

Supplies

  • Little Bill Cupcakes Template
  • 2 plastic, resealable bags
Tip: Check your market for a package of plastic frosting bags. To fill one, fold the top half down, holding the bottom with one hand. With the other hand, and using a large spoon, scoop frosting into it. Unfold the bag. To use the bag, hold at the top and push down using a twisting motion.

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Line 2 cookie sheets with wax paper and place the Little Bill Cupcake template under the wax paper. Melt the chocolate wafers in a medium glass bowl in the microwave until smooth, about one to two minutes, stirring frequently. Spoon the melted chocolate into a resealable bag. Snip a small corner from the bag and outline and fill in Little Bill's head with chocolate. Repeat to make 12. Place the cookies sheets in the refrigerator for about five minutes or until the chocolate has set.

  2. Step 2

    Spoon a 1/2 cup of the vanilla frosting into a resealable bag. Cut the fruit leather into 1 1/2-inch lips (freehand) and press onto the chilled chocolate. Place brown candies on top and pipe on white dots.

  3. Step 3

    Pipe eyebrows and nose with the brown frosting and outline the lips with the red. Snip a small from the bag and pipe Little Bill's eyes.

  4. Step 4

    Frost the tops of the cupcakes with the remaining frosting. Place the sprinkles on a flat and roll the edge of each cupcake to coat. Peel the chocolate faces from the wax paper and place them on top of the cupcakes.

  5. Step 5

    Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Tip: Let kids mix the icings as you add the color. They will love to watch the white icing turn into different shades right before their eyes!
