My son is still all about Super Mario, and for his birthday cupcakes this year, I wanted to come up with something different.
I love doing DIY birthday parties, but I am also a fan of the simple. I consulted Pinterest for a little inspiration, and came up with these.
It is a regular box cake mix cooked as directed, and I made a simple Baker’s frosting with green food coloring.
I used white chocolate chips for the spikes on the shell. If I had more time, I would have piped white frosting around the edges hear the cupcake liner, but I was challenged for time, and I thought these were really cute as they were.
I printed a picture of Bowser off of the internet, cut it out and stuck it on the big cupcake just before we lit the candle and sang Happy Birthday.
He loved them. They were a big hit!
