Cupcakes for the Little Fishy Cupcakes
First, make a batch of cupcakes. These are basic yellow cake cupcakes.
Next separate the M&M’s by color. This was from a large bag of M&M’s – we saved the orange and brown M&M’s for a Halloween project. You’ll need about 15 M&M’s for the scales for each cupcake, and 2 reds for the fish lips.
After frosting the cupcakes, you’re ready to create the Little Fishy Cupcakes with the M&M’s. Start with a row of “fish scales” in the middle of the cupcake. Our cupcakes had enough room for 6 yellow M&M’s.
Continue adding rows until you fill up half of the cupcake with M&M fish scales.
This recipe used Wilton Candy Eyes for the fish eye but you could also use a mini marshmallow and a dot of black icing. Finally, add two red M&M’s for the fish lips.
