Z Is For Zoo Cupcake

Make a cupcake shaped like a zoo.

What you'll need

1 large cupcake

Blue icing

1 animal cracker

12 striped birthday-cake candles

M&M's or Smarties

How to make it

Frost the cupcake with the blue icing and position the animal cracker in the cupcake's center.

For the cage, place 8 candles (wick-end down) in a square around the cracker, then -- using a dab of frosting for cement -- carefully lay the other 4 candles across the top as a rail. Place the M&M's or Smarties upright between the candles.
