Alligator Cake Pull Apart Cupcake Design

Let me say I love these pull apart cupcake cakes.

So easy to make and no playing around flipping cakes out of pans to tear them up before you even start. Can you guess this happens to me a lot?

This alligator cake was super simple and I put my own little spin on it.

I had leftover cupcakes so I just placed them around and decorated them separately. There is no need to do that it is just what I choose to do. Fish on them would have been cute. But more time-consuming

This alligator cupcake pull apart cake was made the morning of the party so it has to be easy!

When I said I wanted to keep it simple I really did mean that. What you see is a couple boxed cake mixes and about five cans of frosting. One thing I would have done differently was to have added about a 1/4 of a cup powdered sugar just to stiffen the frosting slightly as it was hot and pretty loose. Poor alligator his snout got a bit droopy LOL. Oh and I should add that I did add food coloring gels to the vanilla frosting.

I have one other reason I like these pull apart cakes. They are so much easier to serve just grab and go. So they are perfect for a large crowd. Not to mention this alligator cake was pretty unique and caught my guests by surprise. he made a nice little conversation piece.

I did not come up with this idea on my own, however. I found it on Pinterest and it lead me here

    This is brilliant, one of those things where I think, “why didn’t I think of that.” My son is only 3 so we have years left of parties and feeding lots of kids – this will come in handy!
