Sheep Cupcakes

I have been seeing this sheep cupcake idea floating around cookbooks, kids cookbooks, and cooking magazines for quite some time. Unfortunately I do not know who to attribute the idea to because its sorta everywhere, but here is yet another version of how to make a sheep cupcake.

My Sheep Cupcakes!

Cute, right?

If you know me at all, you know that I could not resist creating such a cuddly little creature that is buttered up with marshmallows. The great thing about this is that you can use a variety of caramel candy’s ( I used Cowtails) as long as they are pliable, you can buy premade eyes (They sell at target in the baking department) or do them with icing, and you can use any flavor cupcake you like!

There really isn’t a recipe to share because this isn’t about the cake, but rather the final look.

In any case, here are some things you will need:

  • Marshmallows
  • bag of cowtails
  • candy eyeballs
  • frosting

I also created a very short tutorial video on how to make them:

I will be attempting different types of animals and I will post the results!



  1. These are so sweet! Perfect for a baby shower!

  4. Okay – those candy eyeballs complete them. :heart:
