These homemade Elmo cupcakes were for my son’s daycare class for his 2nd birthday – he was obsessed with Elmo.
I simply baked and iced the cupcakes with white icing. I then dipped them in red jimmies (I had to special order these from online, but they were pretty reasonable in price). For the eyes, I used a larger round tip to create a mound of white icing. I then used black decorator icing and a smaller round tip for the pupils and the mouth.
The nose is an orange jellybean, but could be anything…his birthday was just after Easter, so I had them on hand.
VERY EASY TO DO!!!!
