Puffles are little creatures from Club Penguin, a game which Alex likes. For his birthday this year, Mum and I made Puffle cupcakes.
We started with a plain vanilla cupcake, then iced the cupcakes with simple buttercream coloured blue, red, green, yellow, purple or orange. We used so much food colouring, and it was so bright! It was a little difficult to get the Puffles' pouffy hair to stick up, but we managed it.
We whipped up a batch of royal icing and tinted some black to do the Puffles' eyes. Mum piped black outlines and the pupils onto baking paper, then after that dried we piped in the white. When it had all set, we peeled the eyes off the baking paper and stuck them onto the buttercream.
Happy birthday Alex!
