    Heat oven to 350ºF (325ºF 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. Cool in pans 10 minutes; remove from pans to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.

    Pour bag of white miniature marshmallows into large shallow bowl. Spoon 2 tablespoons of the frosting into small bowl; tint with food colour to desired shade of pink for nose; set aside. Pipe or spread remaining frosting on cupcakes (frosting will be slightly mounded). Press top of each cupcake into marshmallows, covering top completely. Place cupcakes on platter, fitting snugly together. Sprinkle leftover marshmallows as needed to fill in any gaps between cupcakes forming face.

    Sprinkle pink marshmallows in centre of each ear. Place peppermint patties on face for eyes. Pipe or spread pink frosting on face for nose. Pipe 3 (3-inch) lines with black decorating gel on either side of nose for whiskers; pipe 2 lines below nose for mouth. (Or, cut 6 thin 3-inch pieces of licorice for whiskers and 2 thin 5-inch strips of licorice for mouth; arrange on face.) Store loosely covered.

Expert Tips

  • 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.
