They Don’t Do Much

September 30, 2011

This week I have decided to blog about Phineas and Ferb. The blog is supposed to be about food. How can I combine the two?

A quick consultation of the Googles yielded this deceptively easy Perry the Platypus cupcake design. You can click the link, but I’m going to describe it here just to prove it wasn’t too hard. There are some people saying that the whole cupcake craze has gone too far, but really this had to be done.

Step 1: Make a batch of cupcakes. The flavor doesn’t really matter. We went with chocolate. It’s a classic.

Step2: Frost the cupcakes with white frosting.

Step3: Search through the bag of Airheads that you purchased and find all the blue ones. Give the other flavors to a 10 year old boy. They love these things. Maybe save a few green ones for Ghostly Perry’s.

Step4: Roll out circus peanuts with a rolling pin.

Step5: Clip off a beak sized piece of flattened circus peanut and glue to Airhead using frosting.

Step6: Use knife to mark flattened circus peanut with a cross hatch.

Step7: Have a smart wife who buys candy eyes and use these instead of complicated candy melt/fondant cutter directions.

Step 8: Assemble.

Step 9: Take pictures before frosting glue starts to give out and all the beaks droop producing Dali Platypi

Step 10: Eat.

Darn Good Quote of the Day:  Max just put an entire platypus in his mouth. That’s not something you see everyday.

    it has been years since i ate a circus peanut but your mention of them instantly brought back to mind that vaguely dusty, sweet flavor and now i really want some, disgusting as they are, and delicious.

    To think that I saw these things in person and didn’t even know they were platipi. I guess I live too sheltered a life.
