Ingredients

1 cup white candy melts

1 12-ounce bag pink candy melts

1/2 cup vanilla frosting

Yellow food coloring

12 cupcakes with vanilla frosting

Yellow and black licorice sticks (from a bag of bridge mix)

Directions

  1. Melt the white and pink candy melts separately. Arrange 12 plastic spoons facedown on a cutting board. Put the white candy melts in a resealable plastic bag, snip a corner and pipe short lines on the tip of each spoon.
  2. Dip the back of the spoons in the pink candy melts to cover; freeze until set, 5 minutes. Carefully pop off the petals and use the spoons to make more. (You'll need 6 to 8 petals per cupcake.)
  3. Tint the 1/2 cup vanilla frosting yellow with food coloring. Pipe a small amount on each cupcake in the center, then insert the licorice sticks. Arrange the candy petals around the yellow frosting.
