This Cheshire Cat Cupcake Recipe Will Leave You Grinning

Of all the characters Alice meets up with during her adventures in Wonderland, the Cheshire Cat is undoubtedly one of the most intriguing. This mischievous feline has a habit of materializing at will, first in the Duchess’s kitchen, then on the branch of a tree, and later in the Queen’s croquet court. Inspired by the crafty cat that bemuses Alice, this cupcake recipe from Family.Disney.com is all grins — and likely to disappear in the blink of an eye.

Directions:

1. Frost half of the cupcake top, spreading the frosting in a wide arc that resembles a grin.

2. Flip over the sour apple gummy ring so the white side faces up. Cut a small section away from the top of the ring, as shown (an adult’s job).

3. Now score the candy to create wide teeth (again, adults only). 

4. Place the gummy teeth on the frosted portion of the cupcake, pressing down lightly to stick the candy in place.

5. Set the candies for the nose and eyes in place, centering them on the cupcake at the upper edge of the frosting. Top each eye with a small dot of black decorator’s gel or icing.

6. For whiskers, arrange a few chocolate sprinkles on both sides of the nose.

7. For the finishing touch, cut two matching triangles from the gumdrop and use dabs of frosting to stick them in place for the ears.

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 15 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
