The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence put on a groovy Easter Party every year. I thought of making the cupcakes and somehow affixing them to Easter bonnets-bound to win the Easter Bonnet contest right there! But it rained on Easter. Yes, that's why this whole plan was disastrously ruined. That and the black food coloring.
It was hard to get the Starburst beak to stay affixed to the penguin's face. And that whipping and dipping the chocolate frosting technique is a little messy. Starbursts are pretty easy to mold into interesting shapes, but roll them out on the wax paper. And don't let Mr. Film School eat them while he's sleeping! They are not compost! They will last all year- until the Christmas Cupcake Castle when we throw all the leftover decorations on one big Christmas Circus Tent!

Here we are at our Dolores Park made of cupcakes!
