For my birthday this last year, two of the older kids who are very talented cupcake cooks made me a batch of walrus cupcakes! Clearly, I am something less than a professional cupcake photographer, so the total amount of cuteness is not properly communicated in this shot. Also – there’s a high degree of “chocolate sprinkles all over the place” involved here. Still, though – walrus cupcakes!
The book the kids got the recipe they made me was What’s New, Cupcake?: Ingeniously Simple Designs for Every Occasion
. If you want a bunch of fun cupcake recipes – I highly recommend this book.
There’s an alternate recipe from the book Hello, Cupcake!: Irresistibly Playful Creations Anyone Can Make – and there’s even a YouTube video showing how to decorate the cupcakes.
