Since I grew up in a house with two parents who are educators, I have always appreciated how difficult it is to be a teacher. You spend a lot of your at home time grading papers and making up lesson plans. I always like to show my daughter’s teachers that we recognize the great job they do and make them something special at Christmas time.
Since it was freezing at our house this weekend, we opted to stay indoors and bake like crazy. I found this cute cupcake idea at Family Fun magazine and we made it our own. The best part was making all the different expressions.
We baked devil’s food cupcakes, added brown frosting, and the following items for decorations:
Ears: tootsie rolls
Eyes: coconut m&m and black edible ink pen, but I ran out so we used some marshmallows cut in half and doted with black gel icing also.
Nose: mini nilla wafers and m&m’s

I saw this post when it was new and kept it on my mental list. I’ve decided it’s the perfect thing to take to Grammys house this year for our Christmas Eve celebration. My ten year old and I will make a fun batch tomorrow. Thanks for the great idea!
We are making another batch tomorrow too! So much fun and sooo easy!
