  • Begin by shaping your fondant shapes. Roll out 24 spheres out of the white fondant, about 1/3 of an inch in size.
  • Flatten each sphere into a small oval.
  • Take small pieces of the black fondant and form even smaller ovals - these will act as the cupcake’s "pupils."
  • Press each black fondant pupil onto one white oval.
  • Roll out the remainder of the white fondant until it’s about ¼ of an inch thick.
  • Use the bottom of a large Wilton icing tip to cut out 6 circles.
  • Use a paring knife to cut the circles in half - these will act as the cupcakes’ smile.
  • In a large bowl and using an electric mixer, beat together butter, sugar and milk.
  • Start the speed of the electric mixer on slow and gradually increase to high.
  • Once the ingredients are well-combined and form semi-stiff peaks, the buttercream is ready.
  • Divide the buttercream into 3 bowls.
  • Tint each bowl of buttercream with its respective color with the gel food coloring: teal, pink, and yellow.
  • Scoop the buttercream, one spoonful at a time and alternating colors, into your piping bag (with Wilton tip #12 attached - this will help give it its "tie dye" look.
  • Frost each cupcake generously, swirling upwards into a "poop emoji" shape.
  • Assemble each cupcake with your pre-made fondant eyes and smile.
  • Repeat for each cupcake, serve, and enjoy eating them!
