Mum's Cupcakes How-To
You Will Need:
- Solid Yellow Muffin Cups
- Solid Fuchsia Muffin Cups
- Solid Lavender Muffin Cups
- Solid Orange Muffin Cups
- Solid Blue Muffin Cups
- Yellow, Pink, Blue, Orange & Lavender Sanding Sugar
- Picket Fence Cupcake Wrappers
- Pastry Bag or icing spatula
- 1 bag small marshmallows
- 1 bag mini chocolate chips
- Favorite Cupcake Recipe
- Favorite Icing Recipe (we love buttercream!)
- Kitchen Scissors

Instructions:
1. Bake cupcakes according to instructions in solid colored muffin cups. Let cool.

2. While cupcakes are cooling, prepare the frosting. Dye frosting if desired.

3. Using scissors, carefully cut marshmallows into thirds (slicing them so that the end result looks like small circles).

4. Prepare small dishes with sanding sugars. Dip marshmallows into sanding sugar so the sugar sticks to the insides of the marshmallow (where it is sticky).

5. Frost each cupcake and then carefully place marshmallows in pattern to look like mum (see photo above), using extra icing when necessary to ensure marshmallows stick.

6. Sprinkle Mini Chocolate Chips in the center of each cupcake.

7. Assemble Cupcake Wrappers and place each cupcake in a wrapper.

8. Arrange on cake plate and serve. Store in an airtight container.
