What You Need: 1 cupcake; yellow frosting (I used Pillsbury’s Spring frosting from a can); 3 brown M&Ms; candy spearmint leaf; scissors; pastry bag with coupler and star tip, or use tubed icing with tip.
How to Make It: Frost cupcake. Use pastry bag or tube to make concentric rows of stars, working from the rim of the cupcake inward. As you pipe the stars, don’t stop squeezing as you pull away, so they form nice peaks. Leave small area not frosted in center of cupcake and add three M&Ms. Cut spearmint leaf in half or thirds (so it’s lighter and you can use it on two cupcakes) and place on edge of cupcake.
