Cute & Easy Crawfish Cakes! Fun Food Idea for a Crawfish Boil by Amy Locurto. LivingLocurto.com

Cute Crawfish Boil Cakes

I had a ton of fun at a Crawfish Boil party this weekend! As you can see, I also had fun making cute crawfish cakes too!

If you’re not from the south, or have friends from Louisiana, then you have probably never been to a crawfish boil. Let me tell you, it’s so much fun when the host dumps a giant pot of steaming hot and spicy crawfish, potatoes and corn onto a long table covered with paper. Then it’s every man, woman and child for themselves!!

This was my husband’s first boil. It was obvious when he got his leg hair singed off after walking by the cooking pots! Luckily he just lost leg hair and not skin. Then I had to giggle when he was surprised that people ate off of the table. Once someone showed him how to get the meat out of the tail, he really liked it and jumped right into the fun. My kids, not so much! ha!

I kept hearing screams from kids who were playing with the live ones and getting pinched. Who knew a crawfish boil was so dangerous?

Cute Dessert Idea

I love making animals out of cake. Thanks for giving me some great ideas for desserts over on Facebook! Many of you suggested key lime pie or lemon bars as they are desserts that compliment fish.

Then someone suggested cute crab cupcakes made with red icing and candy eyeballs. Those cupcakes inspired me to make these funny crawfish cakes!

How to Make Crawfish Boil Cakes

Since crawfish are more long than round, a cupcake wouldn’t work. I was going to bake brownies and cut them into rectangles. Then I lost track of time and realized I only had about an hour before the party began and I had not even gone food shopping yet! No time to bake anything. So I went to the store in search of ready-made brownies or a cake I could cut up.

Pre-made lady fingers were on sale, so I bought a few packages and figured I could make a crawfish with them. I had no idea if they would work or not. In about 20 minutes I had a huge platter full of funny crawfish cakes! They turned out so cute… everyone loved them!

These cute cakes are a fast and easy party dessert for a crawfish boil!

Cute & Easy Crawfish Cakes! Fun Food Idea for a Crawfish Boil by Amy Locurto. LivingLocurto.com

What you will need:

  • 2 packages of ladyfingers or you could bake brownies or a cake from scratch and cut into rectangles.
  • Candy Eyeballs
  • Twizzlers
  • Red Cake Frosting
  • Scissors

How to make crawfish cakes:

  1. Cut Twizzlers to look like pinching claws. Mine were about 2″ long, I cut into one end and trimmed the edges at an angle.
  2. Put some icing on a lady finger and stick the licorice into the frosting. Add more icing on top of the licorice and cake.
  3. Add another lady finger on top of the frosting to make a sandwich.
  4. Add more frosting to the top and attach two candy eyeballs.

That’s it and so easy!! I hope you have fun making these crawfish cakes.

If you like porcupines and cupcakes, then today is your day! Wonder Park, in theaters March 15, tells the story of a magnificent amusement park where the imagination of a wildly creative girl named June comes alive.

We’re so excited to see this movie! After watching the trailer and seeing all of the movie characters, Steve the porcupine made me laugh out loud. I immediately imagined him as a cupcake. So true to the imagination theme of film, I’m excited to show you how to make these funny Wonder Park Porcupine Cupcakes!

Meet Steve from Wonder Park

Steve is Wonder Park’s safety officer. I can only imagine what it will be like having a porcupine as the safety officer. I’m guessing lots of laughs! What do you think of him as a cupcake? I think he’s pretty sharp myself!

Watch the clip all about Steve below. Then I’ll show you how to turn him into porcupine cupcakes!

 

How to Make Steve the Porcupine Cupcakes

I haven’t seen many porcupine cupcakes on the internet, so what you see came straight out of my imagination. Steve is very simple… just a big pink nose and large teeth. Having a bunch of these Wonder Park porcupine cupcakes on a dessert table will really wow your party guests!

What you’ll need for Porcupine cupcake faces:

  • Mini Marshmallows

  • Pink and Black Edible Markers
  • Toothpicks and Scissors

Cute Wonder Park Porcupine Cupcakes. LivingLocurto.com

Porcupine Nose

Make the porcupine nose by using a toothpick to carve two nostrils on the bottom half of a pink candy melt. Color the nostrils with a pink edible marker so they stand out.

Porcupine Mouth

With a sharp knife, slice a mini marshmallow in half and trim the top of each half off so it looks like a smile shape. Outline a tooth onto the marshmallow mouth with a black edible marker. Now color the rest of the mouth black.

Easy Porcupine Quills

Once you have Steve’s mouth and noses made, you’re ready to decorate your porcupine cupcakes! Cookies and cream Pocky candy are perfect for his quills!

Cute Wonder Park Porcupine Cupcakes. LivingLocurto.com

Begin by inserting a few pocky candy pieces into the top of the cupcake. Break some in half to make various sizes of needles. Use 10-15 pocky pieces per cupcake. I used three 2.47 oz boxes to make six cupcakes.

Gently place a pink nose onto a cupcake, then add his marshmallow mouth and push into the icing well.

How to Make Fun LEGO Cupcakes

I will never forget making adorable LEGO Cake Pops many years ago for my son’s 7th birthday party. It’s hard to believe he is sixteen now! His cake pops went wild around the internet and now you see them everywhere! I’m excited to share another cute LEGO dessert idea for you today.

These sweet treats are easy to make with your favorite cupcakes, colorful candies, plastic cups, my new free LEGO Movie printable cupcake toppers and paper straws. (Scroll down to download the printables.)

Adding M&M’s candy into clear plastic cups is an extra cute way to display your LEGO cupcakes on a party table.  I’ve also put candy into plastic champagne flutes before as well. You really can’t go wrong using these fun LEGO Movie 2 character printables as cupcake toppers.

Making red, white and blue cupcakes is so easy! It’s a fun surprise to bite into your cupcake to find it filled with patriotic colors. I think I had the most fun decorating these cupcakes.

I found a bunch of shiny 4th of July decorations, probably meant for a wreath, cut them up and added as toppers to my dessert. Who says you have to find your cake decorations in the cake isle? ha! If it’s good enough for a wreath, it’s good enough for my cupcakes. LOL!

Filling plastic wine glasses with red white and blue candy, then adding a cupcake makes them super festive and sure to impress your party guests! I got these wine glasses at Oriental Trading Company and used M&M’s for the candy.

Red, White and Blue Funfetti Cupcakes

These Red, White and Blue Funfetti Cupcakes are so easy and a great dessert for a 4th of July party!

Cupcakes

  • 1 Butter Cake Mix Box
  • 1/2 cup Vegetable Oil
  • 3 Eggs

Frosting

  • 6 cup Powdered Sugar
  • 2/3 cup Butter (softened)
  • 2 1/2 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 3 tablespoons Milk
  • 1/4 cup Patriotic Candy Sprinkles

Decoration

  • 3-5 cups Red, White and Blue Candy
  • 12 Plastic Wine Glasses
  • 12 American Flag Toothpicks

Cupcakes

  1. In a large bowl, mix cake mix, oil, eggs and water until cake batter is creamy.
  2. Gently fold patriotic candy sprinkles into the cake batter. If you mix them in too much the colors will blend.
  3. Add batter to cupcake liners and bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes. Once done, let cool.

Frosting

  1. Make the homemade frosting by mixing powdered sugar, butter, vanilla and milk into bowl. Mix until smooth and fluffy. Add extra milk to get desired thickness.
