what you need:

  • Cupcakes
  • Blue frosting
  • Pull ‘n’ Peel

  • Big Foot candy


Step 1
Ice your cupcakes with blue frosting.

Step 2
Place a licorice bite in the center of the cupcake.

Step 3
Cut a Swedish berry in half vertically and place both above the licorice – these will be the claws.

Step 4
Cut two small pieces of Pull ‘n’ Peel to connect the claws to the body.

Step 5
Cut six short pieces of Pull ‘n’ Peel and arrange next to the licorice body to look like legs.

Step 6
For the tail, cut a piece of the Big Foot off into a trapezoid shape and place on the other end of the licorice bite.
