Directions

NOTE: To make all characters, just make one batch of buttercream and evenly divide it into 9 bowls. Dye the buttercream yellow, orange, light green, dark green, blue-green, blue, pink, red, white and black.

To make Pikachu:
Spread yellow buttercream onto the entire surface of the cupcake. Place the yellow, black and red buttercream into piping bags and snip off the ends to create a small-medium sized hole. Pipe Pikachu’s eyes with the black buttercream and cheeks with the red buttercream. Place some extra black buttercream and the white buttercream into piping bags fitted with small piping tips. Pipe Pikachu’s nose and mouth with the black buttercream and eye highlights with the white buttercream.
Place the parchment paper on a flat tray and pipe Pikachu’s ears with the yellow and black buttercream. Place the tray in the freezer for 20 minutes, or until the ears have frozen solid. Stick the ears onto the cupcake and enjoy! NOTE: The ears will soften at room temperature, so attach the ears just before serving.

To make Jigglypuff:
Spread pink buttercream onto the entire surface of the cupcake. Place the 2 candy melts onto the cupcake as eyes. Place the blue, white, black and remaining pink buttercream into piping bags. Snip the ends of the blue and pink piping bags to create small-medium sized holes. Attach small piping tips to the white and black buttercream. Pipe blue dollops onto the candy melts and then smaller white dollops on top. Create Jigglypuff’s mouth with the black buttercream. Pipe the ears and large swirl on the forehead with the pink buttercream.

To make the pokeball:
Spread red buttercream onto half of the cupcake. Spread white buttercream onto the other half of the cupcake. Place the black buttercream into a piping bag and snip the end to create a small-medium sized hole. Pipe a stripe along the border of the red and white buttercream, then a large dollop in the center. Place the white candy melt on top of the black dollop, so that it spreads and creates a border around the candy melt, looking like the button.

To make Squirtle:
Spread the blue buttercream onto the entire surface of the cupcake. Place the remaining blue buttercream into a piping bag and snip off the end to create a small-medium hole. Place the black buttercream into a piping bag with a small piping tip, and a small amount of buttercream into a bag with a small-medium sized hole. Pipe Squirtle’s eyes with the black buttercream with the small-medium sized hole. Use the black buttercream with the small piping tip to create Squirtle’s eyebrows, nose and mouth. Place the white buttercream into a piping bag fitted with a small piping tip. Pipe a dollop onto each eye. Pipe Squirtle’s tail with the blue buttercream.

To make Charmander:
Spread the orange buttercream onto the entire surface of the cupcake. Place the black buttercream into a piping bag and snip the end of the bag to create a small-medium hole. Use the black buttercream to create Charmander’s eyes. Place the rest of the buttercream into a piping bag fitted with a small piping tip. Pipe the eyebrows, nose and mouth. Place the white buttercream into a piping bag fitted with a small piping tip and pipe a sparkle on Charmander’s eyes. Place red and yellow buttercream into piping bags and snip off the ends to create small-medium sized tips. Use these colors to create Charmander’s flame tail.

To make Bulbasaur:
Spread the blue-green buttercream onto the entire surface of the cupcake. Place the light green buttercream, dark green buttercream and black buttercream into piping bags and snip the ends to create small-medium sized tips. Create the bulb with the light green buttercream and the eyes with the black buttercream. Place the remaining blue-green buttercream into a piping bag and snip to ends to create a small-medium sized tip. Use this to create the ears. Place the remaining black buttercream and white buttercream into piping bags fitted with small piping tips. Use the black buttercream to create the eyebrows, nose and mouth. Pipe highlights on the eyes with white buttercream and spots with the dark green buttercream.
