Disney's Toy Story Green Alien Cupcakes

The Toy Story Aliens are my favorite characters in the Toy Story movies. Why? Maybe it is the way they ooohhh and awwww. Or perhaps it is because they are the ultimate heroes in Toy Story 3? I'm not quite sure but they  always bring a smile to my face. I ran across some Alien cupcakes on this site and I just had to make them! So, come along with me and lets make some Alien cupcakes!

You will need cupcakes, frosting, black decorator gel icing, food coloring, Green Apple Sour Straws, Green Apple Sour Belts and white Mentos. Of course my Alien was right there to give a helping hand!
Next, color the icing a lovely Alien green. I cut the ear shapes with kitchen shears out of the belts and cut the straws into 2" lengths.
Here are the supplies needed  for each Alien cupcake.
Place three Mentos on the cupcake and add the black eyeballs and mouth with the black decorator gel icing. I made some different shaped mouths too.
Insert the antenna by pushing into the cupcake at an angle. Take the ear shapes and wiggle them into the icing. Hint: The next time I make these little guys I will cut my ears out ahead of time and let them sit and dry for a little bit so they will stiffen up. These ears tended to droop a little over the sides.
Voila! Alien cupcakes! 
I just have to say it, "You have saved our lives, we are eternally grateful!"  Whew, I feel better now! If you make some of your own Alien cupcakes I would love to hear about them!
