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?

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!
