Recipe {fail}:Duck Cupcakes

{Disclaimer: I'm no pro baker & please forgive the very amateur work you are about to see. It was all in fun with the little}

Get your aprons on.

Gather your ingredients.

Make your cupcake batter.

Put in the oven.

Burn your hand.

Lick the batter bowl. 

Cut marshmallows in half.

Make your sister wash the dishes.
Make frosting while she's doing those. 

Put half a marshmallow & half a donut hole on the cupcake. 
Use the frosting mix to make them stick.

Stick in the freezer for about 20 minutes.

Dip straight into frosting bowl. 

Mold starbursts candy into duck "lips"
A bit of sugar helps keep them from getting too sticky.

Use m&m's or baking chips for eyeballs.
Stick starburst mouth on.

Back in the fridge they go.

Try to stop laughing long enough to take a decent picture of them.

Put them on a folder in an attempt to make them look better.

Look at example picture and wonder where you went wrong.

Give up on making duck cupcakes for your sisters birthday party, the next day.

Decide on store bought cake instead.

Put on some more jams & lie to your sister.

We may not have succeeded in the kitchen, but we succeeded in having fun.
That's what matters anyway, right?
