DIY Lucha Libre Cupcakes

It was Mr. Lovely’s birthday recently, and there was nothing he wanted more in the world than a batch of cupcakes decorated with lucha libre masks. I mean, how can you say no to that?

This DIY is beyond simple. Get a box of Funfetti cake mix and bake it into cupcakes. Buy a tub of frosting, separate it, and dye it a few different colors. Then just get a few flavored Tootsie Rolls or Airheads, roll them flat with a rolling pin and cut them into shapes for the masks. At first I was searching for images of masks online to copy, but after a while I kind of started making up my own. (Hence the one that sort of looks like a Ninja Turtle.)

      I know! Drayjeeless cupcakes almost aren’t worth the trouble. Unless they’re Mexican wrestlers.

  4. You just upped the stakes for the rest of us wives/girlfriends! I make Jeff the same cake every year, it’s his fave, but I clearly need to put some effort into the decorating this time. These are AWESOME!
