DreamWorks TROLLS: Make Easy Troll Cupcakes!

Bring home the happy with DreamWorks TROLLS!  We received a preview copy of the movie on Friday and it totally brought home the happy at my house, and just when we really needed it.

If you haven't seen it, we'd definitely recommend it. It's a seriously cute movie, where an unlikely pair of friends (the light-hearted, always happy Poppy and the much more serious Branch) must save the rest of their friends from the Bergens.

But no movie night is complete without at least one fun thing and this week, we are making Troll Cupcakes!  I'm definitely NOT a professional cake decorator, but I can bake a good cupcake and come up with a simple decoration you can replicate at home!

Want to make Troll cupcakes too?  Trust me, if I can do it, so can you!

You'll need:
Cupcakes - bake a batch of your favorite flavor,
Cotton candy - I found mine in small tubs at the dollar store, then in bags at the grocery store
Icing to match - you can buy colored icing or dye white icing
Candy eyes
Fruit by the Foot, cherry flavor

Bake your cupcakes and let them cool.  Pick a lighter colored cupcake if you don't want to have to use a lot of icing.

Once your cupcakes are cool, spread a layer of icing on top, using your knife to make it as smooth as possible.

Pull a piece of cotton candy off and shaped it gently by hand to form hair for your troll. I went with a traditional troll "peak" style.

Press it to the icing, leaving half of the icing still exposed.

Take two candy eyes and press them into the icing below the "hairline".

Unroll your Fruit by the foot and use a small circle or oval cutter and cut out a smile for your troll.  Press it to the icing below the eyes.  If you don't have a circle cutter, any small bottle lid will work!

And there you have it, your very own Troll cupcakes!  All of ours were Princess Poppy with pink cotton candy and strawberry icing.  I want to find blue cotton candy next so we can make Branch too.

Now I'm going to make this even sweeter!  (Get it?)  I have a copy of Trolls to give away to one of my readers.  Would your kids love to see it?
