  • Frost each cupcake with an offset spatula.
  • Dip each frosted cupcake into bowl of sprinkles.
  • Color the remainder of your buttercream with Kelly green gel food coloring.
  • Using Wilton frosting tip #199, pipe out a tree-like figure on each cupcake.
  • Decorate with assorted-colored candies and use a yellow one on top.
  • Enjoy and happy holidays!
