Jungle Gems Cupcakes is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from These were fun to make but somewhat time consuming. I made 36 of these for one of my nephews birthday party. Plan to start several days ahead on making the animal heads unless you have nothing else to do( ha ha). I did not use the lollipop sticks, this just made everything edible and saved on the added cost for the sticks. If you want to use sticks, try using the small pretzel sticks in place of the paper lollipop sticks. I just stood the heads up in the grass against the pretzel rod tree trunk. Everyone was amazed and could not belive that I had made all of them. These are really cute for any kind of party. The kids loved them. They got cake and candy in one serving which made them happy!!(the adults were happy too!)
