FIESTA CUPCAKE TIME!

Okay, so today is a special treat!  (get it? lol)  I'm showing one of my favorites so far, my fiesta cupcakes!  Once again, these were made with a few hours notice, but personally, I think they turned out pretty dang good!  
So for starters, as you see here, these are the cupcake toppers.  They are made with laffy taffy candy of all different flavors!  Its fairly easy to mold them as long as you keep your hands moist with water or a light mist of cooking spray so the candy doesn't stick to your fingers. (which gets pretty frustrating.)

So here is a close up of a cupcake with the chili pepper topper.  The cupcakes I made with a mixture of vanilla and chocolate so they are swirled together.  (Just drop spoonfulls of alternating favors into your cupcake liners) Now, for the best part, the multicolored sand looking stuff is....Cap'n Crunch!  I iced the cupcakes with buttercream, them crunched up a bowl full of cereal, and dipped each cupcake into the cereal.  
And an up close of the maracas. 

Here are the sombreros and mustaches :) Now the mustaches are made with tootsie rolls.  

Now my personal favorite of the lot, the desert themed one.  The sand is just the plain Cap'n Crunch cereal, and with the cactus, I added a 
nice touch by rolling it in sugar.  

Thanks for reading!
