Super easy poop emoji cupcakes for your next party.
Have you ever tried making emoji cupcakes? Last year we shared some Halloween Frankenstein poop emoji cupcakes and today we have a similar easy emoji cupcakes recipe perfect for your next birthday party.
I am a fan of cupcake emoji ideas. They are super cute and I’ve seen them in the supermarket but making your own homemade emoji cupcakes is more fun and they will be super popular with the kids or adults when they are on display.
Enjoy this fun party treat! We sure did!

Ingredients Needed To Make Emoji Cupcakes
- 12 vanilla cupcakes, baked and cooled down
- 3 sticks unsalted butter, softened
- 6 cups confectioners’ sugar
- 3-4 tbsp milk
- Teal gel food colouring
- Pink gel food colouring
- Yellow gel food colouring
- 2-3 oz. white fondant
- 1 oz. black fondant
Yields: One dozen decorated cupcakes
How To Make Emoji Cupcakes
Begin by shaping your fondant shapes.
Roll out 24 spheres out of the white fondant, about 1/3 of an inch in size.
Flatten each sphere into a small oval.
Take small pieces of the black fondant and form even smaller ovals – these will act as the cupcake’s “pupils.”
Press each black fondant pupil onto one white oval.
Roll out the remainder of the white fondant until it’s about ¼ of an inch thick.
Use the bottom of a large Wilton icing tip to cut out 6 circles.
Use a paring knife to cut the circles in half – these will act as the cupcakes’ smile.
In a large bowl and using an electric mixer, beat together butter, sugar and milk.
Start the speed of the electric mixer on slow and gradually increase to high.
Once the ingredients are well-combined and form semi-stiff peaks, the buttercream is ready.
Divide the buttercream into 3 bowls.
Tint each bowl of buttercream with its respective colour: teal, pink and yellow.
Scoop the buttercream, one spoonful at a time and alternating colours, into a piping bag (with Wilton tip #12 attached) – this will help give it its “tie dye” look.
Frost each cupcake generously, into a “poop emoji” shape.
Assemble each cupcake with fondant eyes and smile.
Serve and enjoy!
