Fun Flyer CupcakesThese little cuties were on the back of my M&M’s bag. {wink} Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 2 bags M&M’S® Peanut Chocolate Candies for Easter 1 18.25-oz. box yellow cake mix
  • 1 16-oz. can vanilla frosting
  • Green and yellow food coloring
  • Black licorice laces
  • 3 12-cup mini cupcake pans
  • 36 mini paper cupcake liners
  • Resealable plastic bag
  • Spatula

And here are the simple steps:

  1.  Preheat oven to 350°F. Line 3 (12 cup) mini cupcake pans with paper liners.
  2. Prepare cake mix according to package directions.
  3. Divide batter evenly between prepared cupcake pans. Bake approximately 15 to 18 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove from oven, transfer to wire rack and let cool completely.
  4. Meanwhile, spoon 1/4 cup white frosting into resealable bag. Tint remaining frosting green and use to cover cupcakes.
  5. Use photograph as decorating guide for cupcakes. Arrange four M&M’S® Peanut Chocolate Candies for Easter, as photo shows. Pipe white frosting body in center and use licorice for antennae.

These would go beautifully with our bugs and butterflies custom invitations and party décor! Happy baking.
