Prep Time70 Minutes

Cook Time20 Minutes
Ingredients
1 box Betty Crocker SuperMoist golden cake mix
Water, vegetable oil and eggs called for on cake mix box
1/4 cup green, red and white candy sprinkles
1 container Betty Crocker Creamy Deluxe vanilla frosting
Blue, green, red and brown gel food colours
48 candy eyeballs
1 candied orange slice or large orange gumdrop, flattened, cut into 24 small triangles
3 teaspoons white candy sprinkles
24 miniature marshmallows
Directions
  1. Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pans). Place paper baking cup in each of 24 regular-size muffin cups. Make cake batter as directed on box for 24 cupcakes. Stir in 1/4 cup candy sprinkles. Divide batter evenly among muffin cups (about two-thirds full).
  2. Bake 14 to 19 minutes or until toothpick inserted in centre comes out clean. Cool in pans 10 minutes; remove from pans to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
  3. Place 1/4 cup frosting each in 3 small bowls, and tint 1 bowl blue, 1 bowl green, and 1 bowl red with food colours. Place 1 tablespoon vanilla frosting in small bowl, and tint brown with food colour to desired colour. Spoon brown coloured frosting into small resealable food-storage plastic bag; partially seal bag, and set aside.
  4. On each cupcake, spread 2 teaspoons of the remaining vanilla frosting to cover two-thirds of cupcake; place 2 candy eyeballs, and 1 orange triangle for nose. Cut off tiny corner of brown frosting bag, and squeeze bag to pipe a half circle under nose for a smile. For hat, spread generous teaspoon of blue frosting on cupcake, and immediately sprinkle with white sprinkles on coloured edge to make brim. Place 1 marshmallow for pom pom. Repeat frosting for hat and sprinkles with remaining cupcakes and coloured frostings (use photo as guide).
  5. Store loosely covered at room temperature.
