Made with just three ingredients, these shimmery three-bite cakes are anything but complicated. We do have a few quick tips, however, so yours turn out just as pretty as the picture. First, if you’re icing your own cupcakes, make sure you really heap a big dollop of frosting on top of each. Your goal is to create a domed top that’s as round as possible—like a pumpkin. Second, dip each cupcake in sanding sugar as soon as you’ve frosted it. This way, the frosting won’t have time to form a skin and the sugar will adhere better. Gently pat each cupcake with your hand after you’ve dipped it to make sure the sticks.
1 teaspoon coarse orange sanding sugar or orange sprinkles
1 vanilla cupcake with vanilla frosting
1 1-inch piece green licorice twist or gummy worm
Sat fat 14g
How to Make It
Place the sugar in a small bowl. Dip the cupcake in the sugar to coat. Top with the licorice to make the stem.
