It seems like llamas are everywhere—or maybe that’s just wishful thinking. These Llovely Llama Cupcakes are easy to make for your llama birthday party, Easter brunch, or any other llama-themed event.

You will need:
Premade cupcakes in the flavor of your choice; White frosting; Black gel frosting; White fondant; White sprinkles; Starburst candy; Flower sprinkles or sugar flowers (optional); Pastry bags; #233 decorating tip (for fur); #1 decorating tip (for eyes, nose and mouth); Offset spatula; Craft knife; Rolling pin; Small bowl of water
Use the offset spatula to spread cupcakes with white frosting.
Roll out a Starburst candy (we used orange and pink) to about 1/8” thickness. Use the craft knife to cut it into an oval shape as shown in photo.
Use black gel frosting with #1 decorating tip to create the eyes, lashes, nose and mouth.
Place white sprinkles on each eye as shown in photo.
Roll out fondant to about 1/8” thickness and use the craft knife to cut two long, curved ears.
Place the ears on cupcake as shown in photo.
Use the white frosting with a #233 decorating tip to add fuzzy fur detail around the edges of the llama’s face. (If you don’t have a #233 tip, try the #1 tip and pipe curly squiggles.)
Add flowers between the ears for a springtime crown.
