Project Instructions

Preheat oven to 325°.

Bake cupcakes in desired flavor in foil liners. Let cool completely.

When cooled, frost each cupcake with green icing, using a spatula.

Pipe the grass using a grass tip (# 233) around the top edge of each cupcake.

Make stones using light and dark chocolate covered peanuts and raisins.

Create logs using pretzel sticks.

Make flames by crushing hard candies in appropriate colors. Sprinkle the crushed candy onto a foil-lined cookie sheet.

Bake at 350° degrees, just until melted.

Watch closely to avoid burning, remove from oven and cool completely.

When cool carefully break the hardened candy sheet into pieces, creating the flames. Push the candy pieces into the top of each cupcake to give it the campfire effect.

Tips

Make sure cupcakes are completely cooled before applying frosting. Adult supervision is required at all times. Oven should only be used by an adult.
