1 box Betty Crocker* SuperMoist* Cake Mix (any flavour)
Water, vegetable oil and eggs called for on cake mix box
Tray or cardboard (16x14 inches) covered with wrapping paper and plastic food wrap or foil
Decorations and Frosting
1 bag (250 g) miniature white marshmallows (about 5 cups/1.25 L)
2 containers Betty Crocker* Whipped Fluffy White Frosting
Pink or red gel food colour
2/3 cup (175 mL) pink miniature marshmallows (from bag of fruit flavoured miniature marshmallows)
2 snack-size dark chocolate-covered peppermint patties
1 tube black decorating gel or 3 to 4 pieces black string licorice
Tip: If you have only one pan and a recipe calls for more cupcakes than your pan will make, cover and refrigerate the rest of the batter while baking the first batch. Cool the pan about 15 minutes, then bake the rest of the batter, adding 1 to 2 minutes to the bake time.
Substitution: If you cannot find the fruit-flavoured miniature marshmallows, tint additional frosting pink and pipe or frost the centre of the ears pink.
Substitution : Paste or liquid food colour can be substituted for the gel food colour.
