How to make the Truffula Tree Cupcakes:

1. Frost four of the cupcakes with white frosting in a smooth, flat layer, and
sprinkle the rainbow sprinkles all over them.

2. Split the coconut evenly into 3 small bowls, and color each one a different color
with a few drops of coloring. I used pink, purple, and blue.

3. Put a marshmallow on the end of each stick, and spread a thin layer of frosting
over the marshmallows.

4. Roll each frosted marshmallow in a color of coconut until completely coated.
Then stick each marshmallow truffula tree into the middle of each sprinkled
cupcake.

cupcakes.

6. Put on two eyes, an orange runt nose, and 2 banana runts above the eyes for
his eyebrows.

tiny corner off to pipe thin lines.

8. Pipe a big thick mustache on each cupcake.

These are so cute! I know kids love cupcakes even more when they are decorated, I brought some over where we were going to have dinner, and as soon as their little boy saw my cupcakes I brought, he screamed and hollered all dinner long he wanted them and not his dinner. I felt a little naught but secretly I loved that he wanted my cupcakes so bad!
