These have to be my favorite because they came out great and were fairly easy to make!
What you need:
- 24 vanilla cupcakes (I used lemon)
- 2 16oz cans vanilla frosting
- Yellow food dye
- 1 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder
- Assorted candy's (M&M's, Jelly Beans, etc)
Step 1: Have your cupcakes cooled and ready to go!
Step 2: Separate your colors.
Step 5: Mix your frosting with your yellow food dye and your cocoa powder to make a golden brown color.
Step 4: Spread some frosting on your cupcakes and throw some M&M's on there!
Step 5: (What I failed to do first: Pipe 4 or 5 lines across the M&M's first, then diagonally) Pipe a beaded edge around the cupcake. (If you don't have a frosting gun, IT'S OK! Cut a hole in the corner of a gallon ziplock bag and place frosting inside and squeeze!!!)
This is about what your edges should look like!
And PRESTO! You're done. Easy, right???
