I made these with my son to take to school. They were easy to make and just as cute at the picture. Everyone loved them!

These are easy to bake and fun to decorate. The cupcakes received many compliments for both presentation and taste.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 15, 2009

Made these for my son's first grade Valentine's party. I used mini M&M's for eyes instead of red hots; kids can be finicky about those at that age. Keep the cupcakes cold so the ears don't fall off.
