    froglet's Note:

    I mixed a few ideas to makhttp://www.recipezaar.com/members/subm/editr2.php?sid=4664933e these cupcakes, and they went down a storm at the Findon Sheep fair in Sussex, UK. You could use what ever chocolate you can find for the head, ears and legs. I thought that they looked pretty cute with just the eyes, but you could add a red icing smile or tongue, and nostrils. You can also use a little tubes of writing icing for the white and black of the eyes.

      these were great! had the cupcakes, large size, and two 5 yr olds to help stick on the marshmallows! we used a chocolate clinker for the face, and used melted chocolate to glue on the eyes. I got chocolate "bullets" for the legs, but ended up with a few "leg-less" sheep, as the kids said they didnt like licorice. They went down a treat at the 3 years old's party. next year I want to try the insects! they look good too!

      These are adorable! I wish my children were smaller to try them out on (teens and twenties)....I may just have to do it anyway. I know they will love them. Thanks for posting.
