Guys. GUYS! The return of Games of Thrones is just a few days away, and we can hardly contain our excitement.

We’ve watched the GoT season 6 trailer more times than we care to admit, googled conspiracy theories about Jon Snow’s fate (he’s gotta still be on the show, right?) and raised many a glass of Westeros wine and Valar Moghulis beer during the offseason (for professional reasons, of course). Now there’s only one thing left to do: Channel our Thrones mania into dessert.

Before the HBO premiere on Sunday, April 24, we’re whipping up a big batch of these dragon cupcakes, inspired by Daenarys’ flying, fire-breathing creatures. (Because if there’s one thing we love as much as GoT, it’s cupcakes.)


JK Denim—the talented YouTube star behind funny cooking videos like Taylor Swift’s knife-stabbed “Blank Space” cake, Kim Kardashian’s bare-bottom cupcakes and Angelina Jolie’s Maleficent dessert—created these amazing cupcake toppers just for PEOPLE.

The best part: You can use store-bought cupcakes, if you’re so inclined (or lazy, like us), or whip up your own batch from scratch.
