Perry Cupcake
What's your Take?

As a part time secret agent, Perry the Platypus is forever popping up in surprising places. While he usually takes his orders from Major Monogram, he's also available for special missions, such as making an unexpected appearance at a birthday party or other celebration.

What you'll need

  • Batch of baked cupcakes
  • Frosting
  • Peanut-shaped candies (such as Circus Peanuts)
  • Rolling pin
  • Kitchen knife
  • Blue flexible candies (such as Air Heads)
  • White candy melts and small (5/8 inch) round fondant cutter (or white candies 1/2 to 5/8 inches wide)
  • Brown candy-coated chocolates (such as M&M Minis)

How to make it

  1. Frost the cupcakes.

  2. Perry Platypus Cupcake Recipe

    Use the rolling pin to flatten a peanut-shaped candy for each cupcake, as shown. Cut a 1/2-inch piece from one end to use as a bill. Then use a knife to score crisscross lines in the longer piece to create a platypus tail.

  3. Perry Platypus Cupcake Recipe

    For each platypus body, use a flexible candy. Stick the bill in place as shown, using a dab of frosting to hold it if needed. Use the fondant cutter to cut a pair of eyes from white candy melts, and stick a brown candy-coated chocolate atop each one. Stick the eyes in place above the bill.

  4. To assemble each cupcake, gently push a completed platypus body partway into the cupcake. Do the same with the tail, positioning it right behind the body and tilting it slightly to the side.

  5. Store the finished cupcakes in a cool, dry place until serving time.
