Lion and Lamb Cupcakes
What's your Take?

Whether your March is in like a lion and out like a lamb or the complete opposite, you can celebrate this mercurial month by making these clever cupcakes.

What you'll need

  • 2 light-colored cupcakes
  • Yellow icing
  • 5 orange and 1 yellow medium gumdrops
  • 3 chocolate chips
  • 1 piece of red shoestring licorice
  • White icing
  • 1 Hershey's Milk Chocolate Swoop
  • 2 brown, 1 black, and 1 pink jelly beans
  • Mini nonpareils

How to make it

  1. For the lion: Frost a cupcake with yellow icing. For the mane and whiskers, slice 5 orange gumdrops and 1 yellow gumdrop in half vertically. Arrange the orange gumdrop halves around the cupcake as shown. Then cut a small horizontal slit in each yellow gumdrop half. Press three 1-inch pieces of licorice into each slit and set the whiskered gumdrops on the cupcake. Add chocolate chips for eyes and a nose and dot the eyes with icing.

  2. For the lamb: Frost a cupcake with white icing. Using small scissors, shape the sides of a Hershey's Milk Chocolate Swoop to make it triangular. Place it on the cupcake as shown, add brown jelly beans for ears, and cover the remaining space with mini nonpareils. For the eyes and nose, cut the ends off the black and pink jelly beans. Put a dot of frosting on the back of the jelly bean slices and arrange them on the Swoop as shown.
