I made these cupcakes with my daughter. She made the legs, and I made the shoes. It was great fun and we were both very proud of our cupcakes!

Method Prep:20min › Ready in:20min
Bake cupcakes according to recipe instructions. Make icing according to recipe instructions and color with green food coloring. Fill icing in a pastry bag with a large star shaped tip. Refrigerate.
Knead black fondant till pliable and shape 24 small shoes.
Shape tiny balls from black and green fondant. You need 6 green and 4 black for each set of legs, plus 2 smaller balls for the pompons on each set of shoes. Thread the fondant balls onto toothpicks alternating black and green. Gently shape to form a leg.
Leave a little space free on each end of the toothpicks - one end to insert into the cupcake, and the other end to attach the shoe. Brush the smaller green balls with a little water on one side and and attach one ball to the tip of each shoe (the water helps it stick better).
Pipe the icing onto the cupcakes, starting on the outside and going in circles till you reach the centre. Insert the two legs into the cupcakes. Refrigerate till serving.
