I was going to take my niece to see the movie, Kung Fu Panda, but just my luck, she had already seen it. So, instead we made panda bear cupcakes from the super cutest decorating book, Hello, Cupcake! As soon as I saw the picture of these in the book, I knew I had to make them. And when I came across the Strawberry Milkshake flavored Oreos, it was a done deal… my pandas would be pink.
But, get to the grocery store if you want some of these cookies. They are a limited edition and who knows when they’ll go away.
We made about six pandas (along with a big mess). Make sure you set aside some time for these. I underestimated how much we would need, so we frosted the rest with plain pink buttercream.
I highly recommend the book, though. The decorating directions are great and it has recipes, too (I used the homemade vanilla for these cupcakes). Now, there’s only one drawback I see to this book. All of our cupcakes are going to start looking alike because the ideas are so cute. Here’s a sample so you can see what I mean.
Actually, those sunflowers may be showing up around my house soon. What about you guys… any preference?
