Kraft Kitchens Tips

Marshmallow Flowers: For each flower, cut 1 large marshmallow into 5 slices; press cut sides in colored sugar. Arrange on cupcake to resemble flower. Add candy to center. Bunnies: Top cupcakes with tinted coconut and marshmallow bunnies. Flowers: For each flower, place 1 wafer on top of cupcake; surround with 10 miniature marshmallows.
Tinting Coconut
Mix 1/2 tsp. water with a few drops of food coloring. Add to 1 cup BAKER'S ANGEL FLAKE Coconut in resealable plastic bag; seal bag. Shake until coconut is evenly tinted. Use more food coloring for a darker shade and less coloring for a lighter shade.
