Hamster Cupcakes

The Masked Singer brand logo

Presented by

Ingredients

for 12 cupcakes

  • 3 ¾ cups cream cheese frosting (430 g), divided
  • 12 carrot cake cupcakes
  • 1 drop pink food coloring
  • 3 drops orange food coloring
  • 24 white chocolate melting wafers
  • 12 mini marshmallows, halved lengthwise
  • 24 black jumbo nonpareils

Preparation

  1. Add ¾ cup (165 grams) cream cheese frosting to a piping bag fitted with a star tip.
  2. In a small bowl, mix 3 tablespoons of cream cheese frosting with the pink food coloring, then transfer to a small piping bag fitted with a small round tip.
  3. Add the remaining cream cheese frosting to a medium bowl and mix with the orange food coloring until the desired shade of orange is reached. Transfer to a large piping bag fitted with a star tip.
  4. Holding the piping bag upright, pipe the orange frosting in a circle around the edge of a cupcake, then fill in the center. Pipe 2 slightly larger mounds of frosting on the top corners of the cupcake as ears.
  5. Place 2 white chocolate wafers adjacent to each other at the bottom center of the cupcake, then nestle 2 mini marshmallow halves slightly under the space where the wafers meet as hamster teeth. Using the white cream cheese frosting, pipe a dime-sized mound where the 2 wafers meet and a small dot in the center of each ear. Pipe a dot of pink frosting on top of the white mound as the nose. Place 2 nonpareils above the wafers as eyes. Repeat with the remaining cupcakes.
  6. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
  7. Enjoy!
