This past weekend was a busy AND lazy one. Can those two words be used to describe at the same time? This Pneumonia is really kicking my trash. I apologize for being so MIA, but I can’t help myself. 🙂
There has been a circus-themed party in the works for some time and it happened Saturday morning. Pictures will come, but I wanted to share these awesome Ring of Fire Cupcakes. They’re so easy and they really made the whole party.
To make your own you’ll need:
- red & gold pipe cleaner
- pastry bag filled with frosting
- one cupcake
- golden toy lion (found at dollar store and spray painted, of course!)
Twist the pipe cleaners together and secure in a loop.
Pipe the frosting onto the cupcake. Maybe a little into your mouth, but MAKE SURE you get some on the cupcake.
Stick the “ring of fire” into the frosting and pipe a little dot onto the bottom center.
Place the lion on top of the frosting and adjust him as needed. Serve on a platter and watch the kids go wild.
Stay tuned for photos from the circus partay. 🙂

I am trying to make similar cupcakes but cannot find the lions. Can you tell me which dollar store you got them at? Dollar Tree? Deals? Dollar General?
Hi Amanda! I got these lions from the toy section at Dollar Tree. I hope that helps! Any lion would work as long as it’s small enough!
