These cute cat cupcakes will have feline aficionados and dog folks purring with excitement. Seriously, look at that face! Begin with your favorite cupcake recipe—chocolate or vanilla—and your favorite icing. Buttercream works well, because the fairly wet consistency helps the sprinkles cling. Dip iced cupcake into a bowl of chocolate sprinkles for the fur. Add two sliced peppermint pattie wedges for the ears. Next up? M&Ms form the eyes and mouth, and trimmed black licorice creates those adorable twitchy whiskers. Delight youngsters with these treats, or get their help decorating to teach them that, yep, cooking and baking really can be fun.
