The Cutest Poop Emoji Cupcakes – Nutella Cupcakes
Before emojis, I never thought I’d ever put the words, “cute” and “poop” together. But let’s face facts – emojis are part of society now and these are some pretty cute poop emoji cupcakes.
We have a lot of fun with these friends here on Ruffles and Rain Boots. If you need more ideas, click here for all of our Valentine’s Day cupcake recipes. Here are a few emoji projects we’ve shared:

Tips to Make This Fun Cupcake Decorating Idea
We love easy ideas here on Ruffles and Rain Boots, and this fun cupcake decorating idea fits that to a “T.” Here are a few tips to make this fun project run a little smoother.
- Bake the cupcakes ahead of time. I love to prepare a batch of cupcakes the day or night before, especially when getting the little ones involved in the fun.
- If you like Nutella, keep it in this recipe. If you don’t (like me), exclude it from all or half of the cupcakes.
- Cut and pre-assemble the fondant eyes OR buy edible candy eyes (which we use a lot ’round here because I’m lazy).
- Note: if you’re creating a Valentine’s Day cupcake playlist on YouTube, here is our video of all Valentine’s Day cupcakes on Ruffles and Rain Boots.

Poop Emoji Cupcake Frosting
- 3/4 cup Nutella
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- 3-4 tablespoons milk
- 2 tablespoons cocoa
- 1 ounce each of red, white, and black fondant
- Make sure 12 cupcakes are completely cool.
- Using a paring knife, cut out the center top of each cupcake (save the top). Fill with a tablespoon of Nutella spread (or your surprise of choice). Place the top back onto the cupcake and set aside.
- Make the poop emoji frosting (chocolate frosting). In a stand mixer or large bowl + hand mixer, combine the room temperature butter, powdered sugar, milk, and cocoa. Mix on low, then medium until smooth. Note: start with 3 tablespoons of milk, as you want the frosting to be rather stiff to hold the shape well.
- Transfer the frosting to a piping bag with a round tip and pipe a swirl onto each cupcake, lifting when adding a new layer to add rise.
- Roll out each of the fondants (on a powdered sugared work surface), and cut:
- 12 mouth shapes,
- 24 white ovals for the eyes,
- 24 smaller black circles for the pupils,
- and as many red fondant hearts as you like. We used between 1 and 3 for each cupcake.
