Sweet and sour lovers listen up: this combination of sour candy and cupcakes is just as addictively mouth puckering as it is festive. Have you ever seen a cuter, more delectable rendition of mummies? You might be tempted to name yours, but we suggest you resist the urge—wouldn’t want to become too attached. The recipe calls for vanilla cupcakes although it’s perfectly okay to use chocolate ones if you prefer, and feel free to substitute your favorite flavor of sour candy tape and gummy candies, as long as the colors are vibrant. Napkins or plates with dark geometric patterns nicely frame the bright dessert, although they’re not necessary.

How to Make It
