Once they were baked I started with the icing. I used the same swirl technique that I used on the lamb cupcakes a few months ago.
(Sorry I don't know why it is posting these side ways)
I added extra to hold the ears on.
The ears were mini Oreos
And a chocolate chip for the nose
I painted all three of them with black gel food coloring
Next I added the pre-made sugar eyes. I could have piped these, but this way way much easier.
And finally I piped on a mouth
And that is how I made my panda cupcakes
