Gus Gus Cupcakes

Learn how to make Gus Gus cupcakes (as seen in World Disney World!) easily with the best chocolate cake recipe, easiest chocolate frosting and simple decorations!
Yield: 2 dozen cupcakes


  • Bake cupcakes per directions. I used a cake recipe, just divided into cupcake liners and baked about 15-20 minutes (depending on size).
  • If you used regular liners (versus the "cups" that I used) you'll want to set each cupcake in a second liner so the yellow is nice and bright!
  • Frost cupcakes with chocoalte frosting using a piping bag or ziplock with the corner cut off. Just a simple swirl works!
  • Dye a small portion of your chocolate frosting green. It will be a dark green, since you're starting with chocolate frosting.
  • In a clean piping bag or ziplock, pipe a small swirl of green frosting on top of the chocoalte frosting. This becomes Gus Gus' "hat"!
  • Add two pink candy melts for ears.
  • Add one pink sugar pearl for a nose.
