How To: Bear Cupcakes

What you need:

Store Bought Cake Mix

Homemade Vanilla Buttercream Frosting
1/2 c. softened Butter
2 T. Milk
2 cups Powdered Sugar
2 t. Vanilla Extract

Nilla Wafers-24 cut in half and 24 whole ones

Reece's Pieces- 48 of the brown ones to be exact

Pink Icing (in a Can or tube) You could color a little of the Buttercream icing and put it in a baggie and cut the tip off or put it in one of those nifty contraptions made for squirting out icing in nice lines, but I'm not that professional.

Make Cupcakes-Let cool-really let cool ALL the way.  Freeze in Air tight container. (Put wax paper in between if you stack them. I didn't and I had gooey bits of cupcake on the bottom of the wrappers that had been stacked on top.) Freezing them, keeps them from crumbling when you ice them.
Frost with buttercream icing.  Use a whole cookie and draw a nose and mouth on. Then add the eyes. Next cut Nilla wafers for ears and put a little pink in the ears. Stick those on. And you're done.

Eat them up. Yum.
