Ingredients

1 box
yellow or white cake mix and ingrediants
mini cupcake tin
mini yellow laffy taffy candy
white and pink frosting
optional: sparkling sugar and sugar pearls

Directions Step-By-Step

1
bake mini cupcakes as directed and allow to cool
2
frost each cupcake with pink frosting
3
to make the crown, place a wrapped laffy taffy in warm water for 2-3 minutes to soften it. Unwrap it and flatten it with a rolling pin. Use a knife to straighten the edges. Then take a teaspoon and cut out 5 arches along one side. Join the ends together into a crown, using a bit of water if needed. Let sit 10 minutes to harden back up.
4
Dip the bottom of the crown into white frosting (and sparkly sugar if wanted) and press it onto cupcake.
5
Apply a small dab of white frosting with a toothpick to each crown point. (add sugar pearl here if interested)
6
pipe a dab of frosting in dots around crown for flourish.
