Peeps Peek a Boo Cupcakes- SO cute and easy! I am making these EVERY year!!!


The story of PEEPS cupcakes told by Katrina as adapted from her friend AmandaThere were 3 best PEEP friends. They did everything together. They emailed each other every day. And of course they tweeted all day long. They went shopping together and sipped on non fat mochas. They painted their nails bright spring colors and made sure that their sparkly sugar coats were on just so. And of course everything they did was posted all over Instagram.

But there was one PEEP that was always left out. She always “Liked” her other PEEPS friends’ posts and longed to be tagged in their photos. But she was a bit…well…odd. She always ordered hot chocolate instead of non fat mochas, and she didn’t even own an iPhone so she couldn’t join in on the Instagram fun.

One day in the spirit of all things sugar-coated and sparkly Miss Blue PEEP had a change of heart and invited Miss Green PEEP out to see Hunger Games with the girls. The evening was so much fun and they all stopped at Starbucks on the way home. Miss Green’s hot chocolate looked so yummy and Miss Pink even shared a picture of it on Instagram, and Miss Yellow tweeted it to all of her followers.

By the end of the night there was a new PEEP in town and they all wondered why it took them so long to connect.

They retweeted everything from each other and repinned all of their great fashion finds and recipes. And then if you can even believe it Instagram came out with an Android app! So now they can know every fun detail of Miss Green’s life in pictures. She even tried a non fat mocha recently!

This cupcake idea was totally and completely adapted from my friend Amanda {I am Baker}. I was smitten with the little PEEP tails sticking out of her adorable cake pops. To see the full tutorial hop over there…I think you can make the jump from cake pop to cupcake pretty easily. {Amanda however had nothing to do with this bizarre PEEPS story.}
