Servings: 12 cupcakes



  • In a small bowl, beat together butter, confectioners’ sugar and milk on slow speed.
  • Gradually increase the speed to high.
  • Once the ingredients are well-combined and form semi-stiff peaks, the buttercream is ready.
  • Frost each cupcake using an offset spatula.
  • Roll out the yellow fondant until it’s about a quarter of an inch thick.
  • Use the two-inch cookie cutter to cut out 12 fondant circles.
  • Press each circle on one cupcake.

To prepare one face:

  • Roll out 2 spheres from the red fondant, about 1/3 of an inch in size.
  • Divide one sphere in two and form them into small ovals.
  • Press the bottom both ovals together and shape and form until it looks like a heart.
  • Repeat with the other sphere.
  • Lightly brush water on the back of each heart and place as on the yellow surface as the “eyes.”
  • Roll out black fondant so that it’s about ¼ of an inch thick.
  • Use the bottom end of the large Wilton tip to cut out 6 circles.
  • Use a paring knife to cut each circle in half - this will act as the face’s smile.
  • Brush water on the back of each black fondant smile and secure on the yellow fondant.
  • Repeat for each cupcake. Serve and enjoy!
