Hello Kitty Cupcakes For Lana

I thought before it got to far away from Lana's birthday, I would share with you the Hello Kitty cupcakes I made for her party and to take to her school.  Because, you know, I'm getting all creative with my cupcakes lately, and "Cupcake Wars" is sooo going to be calling me any day now.  These gals were a bit easier to make than the giraffes from a couple months ago, but still all my own creation.  Here's what you need:

white frosting
black frosting or a small black gel frosting tube
yellow skittles or M&Ms
white fudge Flipz pretzels
sour patch kids

Frost the cupcakes with white frosting.  Then, using the black frosting or gel tube, make the eyes and the whiskers.  The eyes are more vertically oval than they are round.

After that I took a yellow skittle or M&M and put it in between the eyes for the nose.

Then I took a Flipz pretzel and carefully cut it into thirds.  Be careful cutting these, because they have a tendency to break into more than three pieces.  I chose the best two to stick in the top of the cupcake for her ears.

The finishing touch was the bow.  At first I had no idea what I was going to use.  As it turns out, Sour Patch Kids look like a hair bow.  So I placed a Sour Patch Kid horizontally on the right "ear".

Viola!  Hello Kitty Cupcakes.  Please direct "Cupcake Wars" to this blog so they know who to contact for their "Kids Birthday Parties" episode.
