From Elmo Treats to Mario Brothers Cupcakes

 - Jan 27, 2013
From cartoon characters to animal faces, there's so much fun to be had with cupcake designs. The bite-size cakes are designed to be personalized and quirky, which is why there are so many personified cupcakes.

Animals seem to be a big hit when it comes to designing cupcakes, with appearances by cats, dogs and pandas. Although most people would never be comfortable eating such animals, put their faces on sweet treats and it's no problem at all.

Cupcakes are gold when it comes to children's parties too. One cool way to keep the kids happy is to decorate the cupcakes after popular children's characters like the Muppets or Mario from the Super Mario Brothers.

The good news is that whichever personified cupcake design you go with no one really takes it too seriously.
