Winter Olympic Mascot Cupcakes~ Quatchi The Sasquatch

by Linette

We were snowed in for the weekend, so I decided it was a great time to bake some cupcakes. Since the Winter Olympics are coming up I thought it would be a great time to make some Olympic theme cupcakes.

I was going to make some Olympic ring cupcakes, then I saw the Olympic mascots for the Vancouver 2010 Winter Games, and I decided I had to make Quatchi.

I went to the official Vancouver Olympics website, and printed out a pattern from their printables page (after I shrunk it to about 2″ tall). Then I traced each part of Quatchi with tracing paper.

I thought about making him out of fondant or gum paste and laying him on the cupcake, then I decided I would cut him out of card stock so I could stand him up.

I enjoy scrapbooking almost as much as cake decorating, so to combine the two was really fun. I traced Quatchi’s parts onto card stock and pieces of scrap paper. Then glued him all together.

After I decorated the cupcakes by swirling them with a Wilton 1M tip and a little buttercream icing, I added Quatchi to the top, and sprinkled coconut around the bottom for snow.

Here’s Quatchi at the Winter Olympic opening ceremony.

He wasn’t too tough to make, so I wouldn’t mind making a few, or making one or two of each mascot. These would be really cute mixed in with the snowflake cupcakes I made a couple weeks ago.
