April Fool's Day Cupcakes


After spotting versions of these cupcakes all over the web, I knew I had to make them for April Fool's Day this year!  They were super easy to make, and turned out great!   The peas are runts and the carrots are orange starburst cut into quarters.    For the mashed potatoes, I used a thick layer of frosting, and created a "well" in the center.   I drizzled some caramel sauce for gravy, and added a starburst "butter pat" on top.    Fun . .. and very realistic looking!  For once, my kids were happy to eat their veggies.
