Make your favourite cupcake recipe. It can be from a box, a homemade family favourite or any un-iced cupcake. Once cooled, use a cupcake corer to remove the cupcake’s core. Fill the inside of the cupcake with sprinkles.
Tint buttercream icing green using Wilton’s Icing Colours in Green. Make sure to use only a tiny bit because the gel is highly concentrated and you need very little to produce a nice green.
Using a piping bag and a large star decorating tip. Pipe cupcakes in a circular motion to create a design. You can top with a different kind of sprinkles or decorator’s sugar but I thought it best to keep it simple with an inside full of sprinkles.
