Penguin Cupcakes!

I LOVE these and couldn't wait to share!

Penguin Cupcakes
MAKES: a dozen penguins

12 cupcakes
1 cup marshmallow crème
12 Oreo cookies
Candy eyeballs (preferably Wilton)
Large round orange sprinkles, for the beak 
¾ cup sweetened shredded coconut 
Small white sprinkles, for decoration (optional)

1. Frost each cupcake with 1 tablespoon marshmallow crème.
2. For each penguin: Separate 1 Oreo cookie; the half with the cream filling with be the head, cut the half without the cream in half to make 2 wings using a sharp knife (it's okay if the edges crumble, you can hide it with coconut). 
3. Make the head: Spread about 1 teaspoon marshmallow crème over the cream filling of the Oreo. Gently press 2 eyeballs into the crème, then use orange sprinkles to make a beak. 
4. Assemble the penguin: Press the head into the marshmallow crème near the top of the cupcake, then press the wings into the cake until they're secure. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon coconut and white sprinkles, if desired.
