He's BIG! 40 cupcakes made this fella 5 ft long! His length amazed & amused the kids & he was easy to make,too. Parents liked no cutting/forks or mess

  • Chocolate cake ingredients: 2 cups sugar 1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour 3/4 cup HERSHEY'S Cocoa 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder 1-1/2 teaspoons baking soda 1 teaspoon salt 2 eggs 1 cup milk 1/2 cup vegetable oil 2 teaspoons vanilla extract 1 cup hot coffee
  • Buttercream icing ingredients: butter, confectionary sugar, pinch salt, milk, vanilla
  1. One side of an appliance box (free for the asking at the store) was cut for the base. I lined the cupcakes up in 2's and 3's on the cardboard for the body and a wider triangle for his head, then I traced my lines onto the cardboard with pencil, trimmed out and covered with freezer wrap paper. A teeny bit of icing under each cupcake kept them in place for travel.

  2. After the cupcakes were arranged closely together in the shape of the snake I squeezed buttercream icing in zigzags all over the top. With a spatula I smoothed the icing and built a little icing up in a bump for his eyes.

  3. I used 2 small fondant balls for his eyes and colored them with icing markers.Fruit roll-up made the tongue
