I found this gem of a video several days ago and emailed it to Hylan. For some reason the panda bear reminded me of him. He watched it and responded with this:
I can't believe you caught me training! I didn't think anyone
Ha ha! I love it. The best part is when he starts doing somersaults, don't you agree? Roly Poly Panda.
Speaking of Pandas, remember when I made these the first time I got to be on GTU? Hylan has a pretty sweet beard in one of the pictures from that post.
To make the faces, I piped out all of the features of the face in melted chocolate on parchment paper. After it dries, it's kind of fun to create a face, Mr. Potato Head Style, on each cupcake. I bet kids would like it. I'm a kid, so I like it.
They look a little amateurish, so I think I'll have to try my hand at them again. After rereading that post, apparently they were my first trial version, so I maybe I got better on the next round. I'm pretty sure I used this chocolate cupcake recipe with this Swiss meringue butter cream icing.
