Plants vs. Zombies Cupcakes and Dinner

Pin It Now!
Do you know "Plants vs Zombies" yet? Same as the famous Angry Bird, it's one of the most popular video games now!















These are chocolate cupcakes baked in silicone flower pot cupcake molds, and covered with Oreo crumbs. Those fun characters from Plants vs Zombies were made from rolled fondant from Wilton.

Store bought fondant is very easy to work with ( feels like play dough). You can easily use it to create little fondant figures. Do you see those little pink sea creatures on the very top of my blog, under the blog title? they were made from fondant. Store bought fondant is edible; however, you may not want to eat it. I think it taste pretty awful! I still love to use it to decorate my cake because it's ready to use, and it comes in many different colors. So convenient!

The tools I used to create these fondant figures are a little knife, scissors, tweezers and a chopstick.

You know what? This is the first cupcake post on this blog ^,^ I had so much fun creating these cupcake toppers, so I think you may see more cupcake posts here in the future.





Which one is your favorite plant? I really like the garlic



Here comes the zombie! Don't worry! Your plants will protect you!

Here is a Plants vs Zombie meal.
There are mini Angus beef burgers, apple, 2 kinds of cheese, olive, mustard and black sesame seeds on this plate.

  3. Hi Satsuki and Kreativ, thank you so much (^.^)

    To Erin, I download the game a few days ago. My son loves the game, but me....not so much. I still don't understand what's so fun about having zombies in your front door. Anyway, glad you like the food, and thank you so much for coming back!

  8. This is the cutest!!! For the fondant, I know Wilton's taste awful :( You may want to try the Satin Ice one, it's much much much better (it doesn't taste like playdough ;) ). Your fondant decorations are amazing!

  9. Hi Jenny, thank you so much!

    To Petty, the "Plants vs Zombies" dinner is easy to make. Making those fondant figures is time- consuming. Have fun playing with your food!

    To Mindy,I love that potato too! However, the garlic is my favorite

    Hi Marjorie, thank you so much for the info. I have to try the Satin Ice one. It would be nice to have the ready to use fondant that's actually edible!

    ReplyDelete

  16. Beyond adorable. You did a fantastic job!

  17. OMG, that's hysterical!! One of my nephews stepped in to play Audrey, the huge man-eating Venus Flytrap in Little Shop of Horrors, a few years back because he was the only one strong enough to hold up the ginormous costume. I might just have to make a cake version to tease him and add a big "FEED ME" call out somehow. These would have been awesome for the cast party back then. :(

  18. These are too cute and awesome! How did u manage to make these so smooth? I've never use fondants before but I know they are like play doughs and I find them slightly difficult to smoothen out the surface w/o finger prints! lol
    Have a great weekend! ;)

  19. My kids will definitely love it. You got a wonderful creativity.

  20. I LOVE Plants Vs Zombies. This made my day.

  21. hehehe My husband and sons adore PVZ - I "hate" anything zombie-ish (love horror movies, unless there's a zombie)... they will think I've been won over to the PVZ side when these show up in our house. Thanks for sharing your creativity with those less fortunate! =•D

    ReplyDelete
  22. Thank you so much everyone! It seems like people to move on from the Angry bird to Zombies :D
    To Lyn, it's not difficult to make it smooth at all. Maybe because it's store fondant. It's easier to work with.

  23. Great job on the fondant figures. You are truly gifted! I love the onion, but it was hard to choose a favorite, they are all so cute.

  24. Oh~~~~ that's an onion! Haha, I thought it was a garlic ;p

    ReplyDelete
  25. I just came across this on Foodgawker and had to post a comment. They are so cute! I like them all but especially love the garlic, there's just something really silly about it!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Thank you so much for the comments, and thank you for dropping by ^^

  27. Those are the most awesome cupcakes I've ever seen...although I'm pretty sure the potato one everyone loves is supposed to be wallnut :P The taters burrow underground like landmines lol

    ReplyDelete
  28. Lol..... There are 2 big mistakes on this post! The garlic supposed to be an onion; the potato supposed to be a walnut!
    Haha....I should have played the game before I made these cupcakes;p
    Thank you so much for the comment, and I'm so glad that you still like these cupcakes.

  29. Thank you for sharing your fun -- it brought a smile to my day. My twins have been playing this game since they were 4 and it is my son's favorite game. I am considering trying this, but I am low on the confidence scale for trying things that look hard. and wish there were 24 more hours in each day !!!! You are quite the artist. Thanks again for sharing your fun. :))

  30. Dear anonymous friend, thank you so much for dropping by. Cupcakes like these are not something I would make regularly. they did take way too much time!

  32. these are great! where did you find the plat pot cup cake cases?

    ReplyDelete
  33. I got these from Michaels the craft store a year ago. Not sure where else you can fine them. eBay maybe?

    ReplyDelete
  34. I will have to replace some ingredients with gluten free products long island, but I think I can swing these cupcakes! I'm not so sure about those beautiful toppers, though. I don't have as much talent as you do!

  43. I'm planning a PvsZ theme birthday party for my son. I'd love to try these. Which fondant did you use for the yellow and green? The Wilton primary color seems to be darker and bolder. Yours is a softer hue. Also, what did you use for the white stick? One more thing, how did you cut out the tiny circular and oval eyes? I'd appreciate your instruction as this is my very first time attempting anything out of fondant. Thanks.

  44. I mix in white fondant into the colourful ones to make the color lighter; those white sticks are lollipop sticks. You can find them At Michael's or on line; I use a bubble tea straw as cutter. MacDonald straws may work too!
    Thank you for visiting and have fun!

  46. So sorry I accidentally delet your comment. I do still remember the question though.
    Those cups works fine. Just like the other silicon cups. They are small and expensive thought.
    You may consider using real flower pots! I have never tried it, but I have seen it somewhere on the Internet. I think it's from Martha Stewart.

  47. So I started making these and potato and garlic was a success but he pea shooter I'm having hard time. If I put the stick in to make it stand up, the stick eventually goes through the top so I decided to let it dry a bit then put in the stick. Same result.... Also, when I set it down to let dry, the bottom becomes flat. How did you manage making it so flawlessly and for the stick to hold it without going through?
