Clifford The Big Red Dog is getting re-imagined, and I for one cannot wait! My girls love Clifford, and so to celebrate we decided to come up with a Clifford The Big Red Dog cupcake recipe! And since we were having a Clifford viewing party for his new show, why not throw in a table decoration craft as well. A big thanks to Scholastic Entertainment for teaming up with me to make these possible!

Next, combine the frosting and red food coloring, stirring well, to make red frosting. Frost your cupcakes. This is the moment where I let the kids decorate their own Clifford cupcake. It was definitely easier to frost them for the kids first.

Now comes the fun part! Creating your very own Clifford The Big Red Dog cupcake!

How to make a Clifford table decoration:

First, cut out two large circles for Clifford’s eyes from a piece of white construction paper. Also cut two large Clifford ears from a red piece. 

Then, color in pupils on the white circles with the black marker. These will be Clifford’s eyes. Tape them to an uncut piece of red construction paper.

With the marker, draw Clifford’s nose and mouth. Make a cylinder out of the paper, tape it together, and then tape the ears on the sides.
