St. Martin and the Mice Cupcakes

On November 3rd, the feast of St. Martin de Porres, two of our favorite picture books will be pulled off our shelves: Saint Martin de Porres and the Miceand The Pied Piper of Peru. After reading the stories about St. Martin and the Mice with my children, we'll be making mice cupcakes, inspired by a recipe in Let's Eat! Recipes for Every Meal... All you add is fun!

If you'd like to make them too, here's what you'll need:
  • 1 package Chocolate Cake Mix (plus ingredients to make cupcakes)
  • Vanilla Frosting
  • Vanilla Wafer Cookies
  • Candy-Coated Chocolate Pieces (ie: M&M's)
  • Chocolate Kisses
  • Shoestring Licorice


Bake cupcakes according to directions on box.

Spread the tops of the cupcakes with frosting.

To make each mouse, put 2 vanilla wafer cookies for the "ears," 2 candy-coated chocolate pieces for the "eyes," 1 chocolate kiss for the the "nose," and pieces of shoestring licorice for the "whiskers."
