Expert Tips

For a kids’ party, have the cupcakes baked and frosted. Set out dishes of decorating candies and tubes of decorating gel, and let the kids create their own bugs.

If your birthday child prefers chocolate, make chocolate cupcakes instead.

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pans). Place paper baking cup in each of 24 regular-size muffin cups. Make and bake cake mix as directed on box for 24 cupcakes, using water, oil and egg whites. Cool in pan 10 minutes; remove from pan to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
  • 2 Tint frosting with desired food color; frost cupcakes.
  • 3 Arrange candies on cupcakes to make bug heads, bodies and wings. In addition to candies, can use whole marshmallows or sliced marshmallows sprinkled with colored sugar. Use pieces of licorice for antennae. For eyes, add dots of decorating icing.
