My daughter just turned 5 and she has been talking about wanting Dora cupcakes for school since last summer! The day finally came and she still asked for me to make them. So I had to break down and go for it. I made Dora and Diego since there are boys and girls in her class. It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be so I thought I'd share.
Mix red, blue and yellow food coloring into white icing to get a tan color.
I think I did about 2 red drops, 1 or 2 blue drops and 3 or 4 yellow drops approx.
Add more yellow than the rest.
I had instructions to mix colors on the back of my gel food coloring box.
Templates for: DORA and DIEGO
Melt chocolate and place it in a zip lock bag and make a tiny cut out of the corner.
Fill in each pattern with the chocolate.
I used Kroger brand chocolate that you can put the tray in the microwave and melt. EASY!
Refrigerate tray for just about 5 minutes to set (no longer or chocolate may turn white later).
Finish cooling chocolate on the counter until your ready to use them.
You can find the instructions for the cupcakes on Nick Jr. here. Mine don't look exactly like the ones they make on the website, theirs are more detailed and I improvised some to fit my needs, but they did great for preschool and the kids loved them.
Enjoy being a Mom All Day!
