Dirt and Worms Cupcakes

Dirt and Worms Cupcakes, from Dede Wilson’s A Baker’s Field Guide to Cupcakes

Today is my son’s second birthday–and this will be his first time celebrating with his schoolmates in a classroom setting.  I wanted to send in cupcakes for his class that would be fun for little kids, and in line with their current curriculum.  His class just started lessons on “spring” themes, including bugs and insects…a perfect excuse to make these cupcakes!

I used the basic chocolate cupcake and fudge buttercream recipes in this book, but any similar recipes would work for this.  I used chocolate graham cracker crumbs instead of chocolate wafers for the “dirt” since that is what I had on hand.
