Hippo Cupcakes

Need a entertaining idea for a child's party or maybe just for fun?  I made a few of these enchanting Hippo cupcakes the other day.  I found the design in the "What's New, Cupcake?" by Karen Tack & Alan Richardson.  This book is filled with lots of cute cupcake ideas.

Items needed

4 favorite cupcakes
4 Nutter Butter sandwich cookies
16 pieces cereal (fruit loops, cheerio's) etc.
1 cup vanilla frosting
candy or mini chocolate chips for eyes

Attach the cereal pieces to the cookie to make the ears and nose with frosting.  Pipe dots of frosting onto the cookie for the eyes and attach the candy pieces.  Frost the cupcake.  Press the completed hippo head into the frosting of each cupcake allowing it to hang over the edge slightly and voila! Delightful hippos to join your party.


  1. What a cute idea for a cupcake. I love it!

  2. These are adorable! Bookmarking to make soon!

  3. So fun! My kids would love these! Thanks for sharing!

  4. The hippos look so funny, I couldn't help laughing out loud once I got on your page. God bless you!
    Seeing you around on Inspire Me Mondays :)
