Ok one guess as to where Im linking to in this blog. Go ahead….guess….yup you guessed it, gaming confectionery guru Snack or Die. This time Jocelyn gives us what might be my favorite creation yet…
Not only adorable, but these cupcakes are low-fat! Man Kirby could sure use some low-fat cupcakes himself! Its a simple mix using the old trick of Diet-Sprite when mixing the cake batter to cut down on sugar. The Diet-Sprite also ads a nice fluffiness to the mixture. After baking the cupcakes like normal all you need is some cake decorating gel and two little M&Ms to create your little Kirby’s.
Its actually incredibly simple and thats what makes this recipe so wonderful, anyone even with the worst cake decorating skills could execute this confection. So no excuses for not making this deliciously geeky treat!

Jocelyn of Snack or Die has done it again and created yet another confectionary gaming masterpiece. This time she tips her baking hat to last years epic FPS, Bioshock with some Big Daddy Cupcakes.
Bioshock Big Daddy Cupcakes
As usual she includes step by step instructions as well as images. I think its incredibly clever to use M&Ms as the lights on the Big Daddy helmet. The only thing I think I would change about this recipe is using licorice bands to create the mask. I know that they are the right choice to create the texture and form, but Im just not a fan of black licorice. I would probably try to make some thin chocolate bands and even though they wouldnt be as sturdy as the licorice, they would be a lot more tasty.
Now I just need to figure out how to make a Gingerbread Little Sister to go along with my Big Daddy Cupcakes…
