Sackboys made with chocolate cupcakes and frosting.
The Playstation 3 game LittleBigPlanet provides various platforming scenarios where cute little avatars known as “Sackboys” run around and go off on adventures. These little guys are easily created with a few items!
Black decorator’s gel
Bake a round of chocolate cupcakes and allow them to cool.
Scoop a cup of chocolate frosting into a plastic bag, squeeeeeze the air out, seal, snip off the tip.
Start with a few horizontal lines for the top of Sackboy’s head. Continuing to gently squeeze the bag, move the across the cupcake left to right, backing up every tenth of a centimeter or so to create the layered frosting pattern.
Once the top of the noggin’s done, fill in the rest of the cupcake with the same frosting pattern, this time going vertically.
Add to chocolate M&Ms to the cupcake for eyes, placing them near the side of the cupcake.
A bit of black decorator’s gel for the mouth.
Makes a dozen Sackboys. Just one of these is great for a chocolate fix!
