You gotta hand it to these guys for coming up with these awesome Muppet Cupcakes. Yes, Jim Henson himself would be so proud!
We found this pic online– these adorable cupcakes were made by Cupcake Occasions UK. As you can see, these are characters from The Muppet Show, and this particular set has (from the top, moving from left to right) Fozzy Bear, Gonzo, Statler and Waldorf, Sam the Eagle, Miss Piggy, Kermit the Frog, Scooter, Bunsen and Beaker, Animal and Rowlf the Dog.
We could assume that other Muppets are available upon request– like The Swedish Chef, or Dr. Teeth and the rest of the Electric Mayhem. It also seems that Sesame Street Characters can be made-to-order as well.
Our Muppet cupcakes seem to have a fondant over a base layer of frosting, with additional colored frosting elements, and perhaps some molding chocolate to achieve the trademark Muppet looks.
The Muppets are a group of puppet characters created by Jim Henson, as early as the mid-50’s. The group enjoyed a surge of popularity with The Muppet Show (in the mid-70’s), vaudeville-style variety show with strong comedy elements, celebrity guest stars, and behind-the-scenes/backstage antics.
The Walt Disney Company finally bought The Muppets in 2004, and have since then relaunched The Muppets brand with new internet shorts, TV specials, and a full-length film much to the delight of fans, both old and new.
