Blue's Clues Cupcake Toppers

I make a lot of cake.
And sometimes I actually have a really good reason for it...
like my little guy's birthday.

He just happens to be the cutest boy on the planet,
and he is currently obsessed with Blue's Clues.

So, I made these Blue's Clues Cupcake Toppers for his birthday cupcakes.

  
Would you like to make some?
Print the template below. Tape your template to a cookie sheet and tape wax paper over it.

Source: Nick Jr.
  
 Melt some blue candy wafers on 50% power, stirring every 30 seconds until smooth.
Spoon the melted candy into a decorator bag fitted with a small round tip (Wilton #5),
or a ziploc bag with the corner snipped off.
Pipe the outline of each head, then fill it in.
 
Melt some pink candy melts and make the tongues.
(I forgot to do this until the end. Don't be like me!)
 

Place your cookie sheet in the refrigerator until the candy has hardened.
 Slowly and carefully peel the heads off the wax paper and turn them over.
Melt some more blue candy melts and add food coloring to make them a darker blue.
Pipe on Blue's nose and spots.
 
 
Melt a few white candy melts and pipe on Blue's eyes,
adding pupils with the darker blue color. 

 
Place each topper on a cupcake, and you are ready for a Blue's Clues party!
 
Helpful Hint: DO NOT serve these cupcakes outside during the summer.
I took mine outside in the Florida heat to take photos, and they got too warm...
then the ears fell off! Keep them cool, and you have nothing to worry about.

 
 See, I told you he was the cutest. :0)

Enjoy!

 I share my recipes & tutorials at these fun link parties.

  1. These are adorable, and they look super yummy too. When my oldest son was turning three, he loved Blue's Clues, so I made him a Handy Dandy Notebook cake for his birthday party. You can take a look at it here: http://thedomesticatedprincess.blogspot.com/p/parties.html

  7. These are so very cute and I had to stop by because my now 15-year-old baby was a HUGE fan of blues cllues ... from like when he was still in a car seat and I'd put him in front of the TV when the show was on and he just ate it up!

    And I swear that show (along with PBS' "Between the Lions") help to make him a smart little guy who was actually reading by age 3 and reading in his head by age 5!

    And your little guy is adorable! Happy birthday to him!

    :)
