Starlight Mint Cupcakes are an adorable treat for your holiday table. These fun cupcakes begin with any flavor cake. The buttercream frosting is what makes this cupcake a star. Two colors of frosting are piped together to create the starburst pattern and then covered in sparkly sugar to make them shine. The cupcake design calls for a candy glass technique to create the cellophane ties but these are optional embellishments.

These tasty chocolate cupcakes get their names from the Mounds and Almond Joy candy bars. The main difference, just like the theme song from the commercial is that these treats, just like Mounds bars, don’t have nuts in them. Instead, they have a filling made from shredded coconut, powdered sugar and sweetened condensed milk. The frosting on top is a luscious chocolate ganche, which turns these into a pretty close representation of the aforementioned chocolate bars.

It is amazing what you can do with marshmallows, frosting and candy. These lion and lamb cupcakes are two great examples of this. They start off looking like ordinary vanilla cupcakes covered in tasty frosting, although once the toppings are added, they are transformed into adorable treats that fit into the month of March perfectly: in like a lion and out like a lamb. Or is it the other way around?
