Shawn the Sheep Cupcakes with the Grands

I have been trying to post my day with the grands last week when Ava was on spring break. I watched them on Wednesday and with the six year age difference between them, I thought I should take a fun project to do with them. I found these sheep cupcakes on Pinterest and as Otto LOVES marshmallows, I knew it would be a hit. They just look like Shawn the Sheep with their funny eyes.

First we made the cupcake batter and that was fun to watch them. Ava was a pro and Otto just followed. The cracked egg ended up on the counter, but we managed to save it. The hardest part is always waiting for the cupcakes to cool so they can be frosted.

Otto is such a ham when the camera comes out! Notice that he marshmallow in his little hand! Ava was quite serious with her assignments. Yes. that is pink dye on Ava's hair. Her daddy just redid it, so it's pretty intense. It looks quite nice when it fades out.

Ava was so good at adding the eyes with a bit of frosting. We used Reese's peanut butter Easter candies for their faces. They really were the perfect size.

When the cakes were cool enough, we frosted them with vanilla frosting and then decorated them with mini marshmallows. Otto could even do it! They turned out so cute.

We watched the Shawn the Sheep movie after we finished. It was a fun day for Grandma Linda.
