Poop Emoji Cupcakes

October 18: National Chocolate Cupcake Day

Although 2020 turned out to be a crappy year due to the coronavirus, it gave us all some extra time to reflect on the positive things in life and appreciate what we do have…like our health. We thank God that we have not contracted COVID-19 and that all of our medical test results were normal (including a negative result for the coronavirus).

To celebrate passing her poop test (Cologuard), Islander made chocolate cupcakes and decorated them as the popular emoji. They are perfectly paired with our toilet paper cake and are a fun food for National Chocolate Cupcake Day.


For the chocolate cupcakes

For the chocolate buttercream frosting

  • ½ cup (1 stick) butter, softened
  • 2-3 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 2+ tablepoons whipping cream


Bake chocolate cupcakes, cool and set aside.

Make the chocolate frosting. In a mixing bowl, cream the butter until smooth. Add the cocoa powder and beat until well blended. Gradually add the powdered sugar. Thin to piping consistency with whipping cream.

Fill a piping bag outfitted with a large round decorating tip. Pipe swirls on top of the cupcakes, starting from the bottom and squeezing to layer up to a tip. Roll out white fondant to 1/16 inch-thickness. Use ½-inch round decorating tip to cut circles. Slice in half to make the mouth. Position the mouth on the cupcake. Finish decorating the cupcake with candy eyes. Refrigerate to set the frosting. Bring to room temperature to serve.
