  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pans). Make, bake and cool cake as directed on box for 24 cupcakes.
  • 2
    Reserve 2 tablespoons frosting. Tint remaining frosting with food color to make green; frost cupcakes.
  • 3
    For eyes, place 2 cookies near top edge of each cupcake, inserting on end so they stand up. Attach 1 cinnamon candy to each cookie with reserved white frosting. Add dots of white frosting for nostrils.
  • 4
    For mouth, pipe on red icing. Slice gumdrops; add slice to each cupcake for tongue. Store loosely covered.

Expert Tips

  • If your kids don’t like the cinnamon taste of the red candies, use the red colored mini candy-coated chocolate baking bits from a 12-ounce bag.
  • For a touch of whimsy, cut small pieces of black gumdrops and place one on each “tongue” to resemble a fly.
