Frosted cupcakes based off the Vortigaunts from Half-Life.
These alien beasties with their Shakespearian speech are quite the characters in Half-Life 2: Episode Two. They’re popular enough to have been made into a plush toy!

Start with the red frosting and frost a band across the cupcake to create the dominate large red eye.
Stick two mini marshmallows on either side of the cupcake. Pulling down the cupcake liner a bit will help to hold to the marshmallow to the side of the cupcake.
Frost the rest of the cupcake with green frosting.
Add four almond slices – all roughly the same size – for the teeth.
Add a red M&M to the eyeball.
These make for good monster cupcakes for Halloween to boot!
