How to make this adorable Bears Movie Party Cupcake Recipe

Mix sifted flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder in a large bowl.
Combine bananas, sugar, egg, melted butter, and raspberry extract in separate bowl.
Stir banana mixture into dry ingredients and stir until moistened.
Evenly scoop batter into muffin tin lined with cupcake liners

To decorate your cupcakes, follow these simple steps.
With a small amount of brown food coloring gel, color your butter cream frosting a medium brown. Transfer frosting to prepared piping bag with “grass” tip attached.
In short bursts, pipe frosting onto the top of each cupcake, pulling up as you apply the frosting. This will create the “fur” for your bears.
Using the gel food coloring, tint fondant 2 slightly different shades of brown.
Using your finger tips and palms of your hands, roll fondant into balls and flatten to create the paws and faces of these adorable bear cupcakes!
