12 mini marshmallows (for the eyes)
24 mini chocolate chips (for the pupils)
24 red gumdrop fruit slices (for the ears and tails)
12 pink gummy rings (for the trunks)
12 vanilla cupcakes
2 cups vanilla buttercream
34 cup pink sanding sugar
A cupcake carrier, designed specifically for the job, is a great help when transporting decorated cupcakes. If you don't have one, prep all the trunks and ears and eyes ahead of time, and assemble them when you arrive.
