    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 mix as directed on box for 24 cupcakes. Divide batter evenly among muffin cups (about two-thirds full).

    In small bowl, place vanilla frosting; tint with orange food color to desired color. Frost each cupcake with 1 generous tablespoon orange frosting.

    Cut licorice twists into 24 equal pieces. Press licorice into top edge of each cupcake for stem.

Expert Tips

  • Use a decorating bag fitted with small plain piping tip when using the chocolate frosting for a more polished decorating look.
  • No green licorice pieces? Pretzel sticks make a great alternative!
  • For colorful emotions, tint additional frosting with food colors and pipe on cupcakes.
