These enchanted cupcakes are covered in a sugary glaze and cinnamon-candy spots. They sprout between blades of icing grass. If you like, you can decorate the cupcakes with caterpillars, snails, or acorns made with tinted fondant.

Cook's Notes

Decorating the Toadstools: Use your imagination to shape colored fondant into caterpillars, snails, or acorns. Working on waxed paper, knead a tiny amount of food coloring (use an assortment of food coloring gels) into ready-to-use fondant ( Gently form the fondant as if it were clay. It's just sticky enough that you can press the parts together (lift the finished decorations with a thin spatula).
