  • Bake the cupcakes according to the package.
  • As the cupcakes are cooling, prepare the frosting by adding 2–3 drops of green food dye.
  • Make the marshmallow petals for the cupcakes by using kitchen shears to cut a marshmallow in half 3 times. It takes 5 petals to make 1 flower.

  • Repeat until all of the cupcakes are decorated!
