Paddington Inspired Cream Cheese and Orange Marmalade Teddy Bear Cupcakes

generic disclosureTeddy Bear CupcakesThe challenge? Create a fun movie night snack to celebrate the digital release of Paddington. The solution? The world’s easiest Teddy Bear Cupcakes, of course! Teddy Bear FacesStart with your favorite cupcake recipe. While those are in the oven, make the teddy bear faces. Use vanilla wafers and draw on the mouths with a toothpick dipped in melted chocolate. Use more melted chocolate to attach a mini M&M as the nose. Marmalade CupcakesPaddington loves marmalade, so orange marmalade stuffed cupcakes were the perfect fit! A cupcake corer makes this easy, but if you don’t have one, a knife or spoon will work. Just spoon in your marmalade and then recover the top. Cream Cheese FrostingI practiced my piping skills with Duff’s Cream Cheese frosting. Not bad, right? I promise your frosting won’t matter too much since the top of your cupcake will be covered up, though. Perfect if you’re usually hopeless with frosting like me! Face without EyesMini vanilla wafers make the bear ears. Just add those and then place on the face you already created. Teddy Bear CupcakesThe final touch? Two dots of frosting with M&M’s pressed in to create the eyes. I used the classic “spoon of frosting in a plastic bag” trick to pipe on those dots. Teddy Bear CupcakesTotally cute, right? I promise you can make these Teddy Bear Cupcakes yourself in just a few minutes. Perfect for your movie night celebration!
