Little Peepers Baby Cupcakes is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The cupcakes are so cute, but I didn't make cupcakes. I made a 14" round babyshower cake and used the little Peeper on my cake. I frosted my cake pink and did the borders with white ruffles, added a cluster of pink, blue and yellow drop flowers here and there and used the fondant to make her blanket same as on the cupcakes. The head, body and hands were made with krispy treat and, since I frosted my cake with whipcream I used can buttercream frosting tinted fleshtone. Didn't want to spend time making a entire batch of buttercream for such a small job.The expecting mom just loved the cake, and started to cry. Expecting moms are so emotional, lol.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I recently made these adorable cupcakes for my niece's baby shower and found them very easy to make. I used molded marshmallow krispy treats for the baby's body to make it more economical. I used brown royal icing for the face and blue pacifiers, making the pacifiers ahead and attaching them after. I skipped the fringe on the blanket due to time constraints, and finished 24 toppers within three hours time. Everyone flipped over them and I will definitely make them again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The cupcakes were not very difficult to make, but they were very time consuming. They were a hit at the baby shower I made them for. I would definiately make them again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These cupcakes were so fun to make! I think the most time consuming part was making the noses and pacifiers. If you make all the "parts" ahead of time, it is so easy to go down the "assembly line" to make each cupcake in no time. They were a hit at the shower I made them for. I made them to go along with the Naturally Curly Cake. I need a few more expectant mothers so that I can make these Little Peepers again!!
