This weekend I made 20 of these cat cupcakes based off of the Japanese cat character Nyanko. Nyanko is a cat who is always disguised as something else (especially food).



There were two flavors.

red velvet with cream cheese frosting:



and vegan coconut cupcakes with coconut almond frosting:



I made the heads, tails and paws out of marzipan.




I had a lot of fun making these! Hope you like them!

You did such a great job! I love the Nyanko kitties -- and these totally capture that adorableness.

Really really cool! If I had any baking talent at all, I'd be making these in a heartbeat!

Thanks for all the nice comments! It was kinda hard to eat them and the little kitties looked a little pitiful once you did take a bite.

Oh, goodness. Those both sound and look delicious, yet they're so adorable, I would never. I really want to try out manipulating marzipan some times. It seems difficult and messy. Did you have too much trouble with it?

I found the marzipan in the baking aisle of my supermarket. Or there is a Martha Stewart recipe on her website to make your own with almond paste. I just bought the ready made stuff in the tube because it was the same price as the can of almond paste.

I just rolled out the marzipan on a silicone mat thing and then cut out the little cat heads with a circular cookie cutter that I bent to make oval. It helped to sprinkle a little cornstarch on the marzipan if it got too sticky and warm. It's really easy and fun. Like playing with play dough. You should try!
