Hello Kitty Cookie Cupcakes

People always ask me for quick ways to decorate cupcakes. Since I know not everyone has the time to roll out fondant and form perfect little figures, a trick I do a lot is using cookies as toppers. I took plain Hello Kitty cookies and fancied them up with sprinkles and icing. The decor is still cute and totally edible!

ingredients:
Hello Kitty Italian Cookies
large red heart quins
small red heart quins
yellow sprinkles
black frosting
frosted cupcakes

I happened to find these new Hello Kitty cookies imported from Italy of all places! They are almost like a biscuit, and have a really nice shape and profile.

All on their own they are adorable, but I thought I’d fancy ‘em up a bit using heart quins, sprinkles and piping. Turning large red heart quins on their side and placing a tinier heart quin in the center makes for a nice colorful bow. I used a yellow sprinkle for her distinctive nose (I tried to find the most oval-y shaped ones since I’m very particular about everything looking just so).

Using black frosting and a #2 tip, I carefully piped over Hello Kitty’s most prominent facial features: the eyes and whiskers.

I let these set overnight and then placed them on top of the cupcakes right before serving.

This is an easy way to make a distinctive, cute cupcake with minimal work!
