    Frosting Directions:

    • Cream the butter and powdered sugar until it looks light and creamy.
    • If it doesn't cream add several drops of the heavy whipping cream until it creams.
    • Test to see if the frosting can form and hold a stiff peak by taking a spoonful of frosting and turning the spoon upside down. If the frosting stays on the spoon it is ready if not then....
    • Add more powder sugar 1/2 cup at a time. Mix well.
    • When ready, scoop the frosting into a pastry bag with a large star tip.
    • Twist the open end of the pastry bag to push the frosting to the tip.
    • Holding the bag straight up and down, frost the cupcake straight up and down.


    • Place 2 large candy eyes on top of the frosted cupcake.
    • Cut the chocolate chip cookie in half.
    • Stick the cookie in the middle of the frosted cupcake as though it is sticking out of his mouth.
