One of my favorite book series as a kid was Paddington. I kept all of my childhood books and have been reading them to my daughter. Not only is Paddington a favorite, but so is a good birthday cake! Combining the two was a must. ha!

When I saw the trailer for the new Paddington movie, I was so excited that one of my favorite book characters would come to life. With an all star cast and the producer from Harry Potter, this movie will be fabulous!

How to Make Paddington Bear Cupcakes

After baking cupcakes, make the bear’s nose by placing 6-9 candy melts onto parchment paper. Melt in the microwave for about 30 seconds until they are melted enough to place chocolate chips inside of them.

Take out of the microwave and carefully place a chocolate chip, pointed side down, into the candy melt. Placing the chocolate chip in different areas of the candy melt make each nose unique.

Let cool completely before placing on cupcakes.

Now gather everything you need to decorate your cupcake.

Pick out your favorite color of sprinkles for his eyes. I chose blue.

Place the candy melt nose onto the cupcake.

Gently add the paper hat. If the hat gets messy, that’s okay because Paddington is a messy bear and his hat is usually dirty!

I used matte photo paper for my hats, but the icing still soaked into the paper just a bit. I actually liked how the chocolate made the hat look worn.

Drop two sprinkles onto the cupcake for the eyes. Use a toothpick to fix your eyes just right. You can also use blue icing if you prefer.

  1. A friend passed on your recipe and it was a big hit. I made box cupcakes but did a frosting recipe with butter and cream cheese (found on McCormick spice website). This was my first time using a pastry bag which took me some time. They were such a big hit from the 2, 11 year old and the older crowd too.
