Polar Bear Cupcakes

Grace and I think these are the cutest things! We found them in Family Fun Magazine (where we also found the mice!). It is a great resource for so many sweet, fun kid friendly recipes.
Wouldn't this be a hoot to make during the Winter? We are going to make some this weekend.
School is back in session tomorrow. I will miss the girl!
We have been putting away Christmas and dusting. So much to do and it always seems a teensy bittersweet to pack it all away.
RECIPE INGREDIENTS: Light-colored cupcakes, 1 regular and 3 mini White frosting Shredded coconut 3 large and 2 small white gumdrops 1 Junior Mint candy Chocolate chips, 4 regular and 4 mini
1. First, frost the top, sides, and bottoms of both a regular-size cupcake and a mini cupcake with white frosting. For each cupcake, frost the bottom first; then use a fork stuck into the bottom to hold the cupcake while you frost the rest of it.
2. Roll the cupcakes in shredded coconut; then, working on waxed paper, set the cupcakes on their sides with the top of the smaller cupcake stuck to the bottom of the larger one to form the bear's head.
3. Add 2 horizontal slices from a large white gumdrop for ears, a Junior Mint candy for a nose, and 2 chocolate chips for eyes. For each cub, frost a mini cupcake and a large gumdrop, then roll them in coconut and arrange them on their sides as shown. Add 2 horizontal slices from a small white gumdrop for ears, a chocolate chip nose, and 2 mini chocolate chip eyes.
