I made these lizard cupcakes for my son, Caleb, to celebrate his birthday with his 2nd grade class at school.
First I baked, cooled, and iced the cupcakes. I used buttercream icing that I tinted green to pipe the outline of the lizard on and then fill it in. I used red buttercream icing to pipe on the tongues, and I used some white icing to make the white part of the eyes. I used dark purple nonpareils (little ball sprinkles) to make the pupil of the eyes.
