Now let’s make some fun Picnic Cupcakes to go with those printables! These Hamburger and Hot Dog Cupcakes are a small version of the original Picnic Cupcakes. Made with vanilla wafers and various frosting and candy, I originally spotted them on My Cake School and decided to make them look like a picnic tablecloth.

How to make cookie hot dogs

  1. Cut mini vanilla wafer in half
  2. Place on cupcake
  3. Add hot dog using Tip #10. For the frosting, I mixed red and brown to get the hot dog color
  4. Add ketchup and mustard using Tip #3 or #4

For the cupcakes… Using Tip #233, which is the grass tip, add grass to 16 cupcakes. Using Tip #47, or other tip that is flat with a textured side, frost 6 white and 6 red cupcakes, adding the frosting in stripes to make it look like a tablecloth.

For the ants… Soften Tootsie Roll in microwave for 5 seconds, roll 2 small pieces for the body, add to cupcakes. Add a brown M&M for the head. Pipe on antennae and legs using a Tip #3 and brown frosting.
