I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Lionsgate. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

Are you guys as excited as my kids are for the Shaun the Sheep Movie that comes out today? Shaun the Sheep has been one of our family favorites for a couple of years now so my kids cannot wait! We are so excited to see this during our next family movie night that we just had to make these Shaun the Sheep Cupcakes for snack!

Shaun the Sheep Cupcakes

For the hubs and our son watching Shaun the Sheep has been a morning ritual since meatball started walking. Every morning over a bowl of cereal the two of them would be absorbed by the fascinating world of Claymation. Shaun’s fun adventures are a great way to teach children teamwork, leadership, and problem solving skills.

When Shaun decides to take the day off and have some fun, he gets a little more action than he bargained for. A mix up with the Farmer, a caravan, and a very steep hill lead them all to the Big City and it’s up to Shaun and the flock to return everyone safely to the green grass of home.

Shaun the Sheep Cupcakes

Directions

  1. Prepare cupcakes as directed on box for 6 cupcakes. Place the rest into your cake pop pan. If using the cake pop method oil and flour your pan before use to make sure your cake balls pop out easily. 
  2. Once done baking pop your cake ball pan into the freezer for 10-15 minutes and set your cupcakes on a cooling rack.
  3. While your cupcakes cool take a piece of wax paper and a ziplock bag. In the ziplock bag place one block of white chocolate almond bark. Microwave in 10 second intervals, squeezing after each time, until chocolate is a smooth consistency. Add in your black food dye and fully mix. Snip away the corner of your ziplock bag and on the wax paper draw out your sheep ears. Allow to dry.Shaun the Sheep Cupcakes
  4. Once cupcakes are cool and ready to be frosted mix up two bowls of frosting- one white and a very small one of black. Frost your cupcakes with plain white frosting and your cake balls with black. You can also use the black almond bark instead of the black frosting if you desire.
  5. Place your cake balls on top of your frosted cupcakes. Add two eyes to your sheep.
  6. Using your marshmallows fill in any empty space showing on top of your cupcake.
  7. Add your sheep’s ears.
  8. Mix green food dye and coconut. Sprinkle around your plate for grass.
  9. Serve and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

If you do not have a cake ball pan you can still make cake pops by crumbling up a couple of the cupcakes and adding in frosting until it is at a consistency that you can mold a ball with your hands.
