(Family Features) - Step up to the charm and whimsy of Inchworm By The Yard. Simple cupcakes baked in Silly-Feet! silicone baking cups create this colorful, walking inchworm - perfect for everything from kid-friendly get-togethers to fun-filled birthday parties.
Easy to make, these treats start with a cake mix. Then, add mix-ins of chopped candy bars or baking chips, or a combination. The chocolaty possibilities are endless.
Once cool, decorating is a snap. Ice each cupcake in colors to match the Silly-Feet baking cup, or mix and match. Use a star-shaped decorating tip to make the fuzzy spikes on each inchworm "segment." The recipe contains foolproof step-by-step instructions to show you how. Or, just use swirls of colored icing and decorate with chewy gumballs, lollipop sticks and mini candy-coated chocolate dots to form the face and antennae.
For ease, arrange the cheerful inchworm on a decorative tray or serving platter. Then treat guests to this silly surprise. Silly-Feet also make amusing serving cups for ice cream or fruit or fun holders for candies and other tasty treats.
