The Peanuts Movie Cupcakes Process

Prepare cake mix according to box instructions.
Line cupcake tins with paper cupcake liners.
Fill each section 3/4 of the way full.
Bake 18-20 minutes.
Allow to cool completely.
Separate frosting into 5 bowls and color one pink, red, blue, yellow, and leave one white.
Frost cupcakes evenly – some with each color.

Now it’s time to decorate the cupcakes to match the character’s shirts (and Snoopy’s face!).
Charlie: Using the Yellow Cupcakes, draw a black chevron pattern on the middle of the cupcake
Sally: Using the Pink Cupcakes, draw black polka dots all over the cupcake
Lucy: Using the Blue Cupcakes, make a ruffled collar at the top of the cupcake and two horizontal lines in the middle with dots on the ends of each lines
Linus: Using the Red Cupcakes, draw horizontal lines
Snoopy: Finally, using the white frosted cupcakes, draw two semi circles on each side for snoopy’s ears, two dots for his eyes, an oval for his nose, and finish him off with a smile!
