What's your Take?

Here's where Pokémon cards come in handy--your guests will use them as visual guides as they "make 'em all". With these cupcakes, trainers won't have to do any catching.

What you'll need

  • Vanilla frosting
  • Food coloring (for orange, yellow, black, pinkish purple and green icing)
  • Cupcakes--2 to 3 per guest, plus extras for sculpting
  • Red rope licorice
  • Black gel icing
  • Black gel icing
  • Different colored gumdrops
  • Junior mints
  • Candy corn
  • Different colored jellybeans
  • Hershey's Kisses
  • Toothpicks

How to make it

  1. Line a table with a tablecloth for easy clean-up.

  2. Fill bowls with candy for decorating, as well as different colored frosting (just add food coloring to the vanilla frosting).

  3. Using their Pokémon cards as visual guides, let your guest go wild as they decorate.
