butterfly cupcakes

Today, I made some butterfly cupcakes. I did it with a couple friends at an art camp my mom has started, and I totally recommend the cupcake batter we used. It was from Trader Joes, and it was called "Vanilla Cake and Baking Mix" . Here is what you need:

unfrosted vanilla cupcakes                                          frosting
sprinkles                                                                   chocolate chips
butter knife                                                                cutting board

Use the knife to cut out a shallow pool in the top of the cupcake. Fill the pool with frosting(you are free to do an outrageous amount!)and move the piece that you cut out to the cutting board. Cut it in half to make wings, and make adjustments to make each wing more like a heart instead of a half circle. Line up three or four chocolate chips in the middle of the cupcake and put the wings on either side of them. Decorate with sprinkles and enjoy!
