The poro from League of Legends created with cupcakes, coconut, and candy.
Poro are the tiny, fluffy creatures with big pink tongues that inhabit the Howling Abyss. They’re harmless and awfully cute. Here’s how to create these little puffballs in cupcake form.
White or Yellow cupcake batter
Brown Reese’s Pieces (or Brown M&Ms)
First step is to prepare the cupcakes! White or yellow cupcakes are best. If you decide to go with chocolate cupcakes, be careful when applying frosting so that chocolate crumbs don’t get mixed in with the frosting and coconut top.
When you’ve got your cupcake batter ready to go, fill the cupcake liners 3/4 full.
Bake for around 15-20 minutes. Cupcakes are done when poked with a toothpick and the toothpick comes out clean.
Allow the cupcakes to cool.
When you’re ready to decorate the cupcakes, gather up the pink Starbursts, brown Reese’s Pieces (or M&Ms), shredded coconut, and cashews. Pour the shredded coconut into a bowl for easy cupcake dipping.
After the cupcakes have cooled, generously frost a cupcake.
Dip the frosted cupcake into the bowl of coconut.
Take your Reese’s Pieces — or your M&Ms, whatever makes your skirt fly up — and place two candies near the top of the cupcake to create the eyes.
For the horns, take two cashews and insert around the top of the cupcake.
The poro creating setup!
To create the tongue, unwrap a pink Starburst.
Smoosh it around in your hand into the wide tongue shape. The Starbursts are a little hard at first, but soften up pretty quickly. Your hands will get a little sticky from this bit.
Use a toothpick to draw a line down the middle of the tongue.
Add the tongue to your cupcake.
Add the eyes, horns, and tongue to the rest of your cupcakes.
Enjoy your poros!
