Peppa Pig Cupcakes

Peppa Pig is a cartoon show who is all about a little pig who lives with her mom, dad, and her little brother, George. Majority of the story or plot revolves around fun adventures, occasional tear provoking scenarios, but always ends on a happy note. I have heard so much about this character from my fellow moms and parents that I figured, it would be a great angle to recreate Peppa into a decadent dessert!

Okay these piggy cupcakes are super adorable! It’s also the year of the pig according to the Chinese lunar calendar, so it’s very fitting!
