I'm not much of a baker, but I was invited to a Chinese New Year party and I decided to make themed cupcakes. I used regular white cake mix with red food coloring, dark chocolate frosting, gold wrappers, and red "cake glitter", and made some decorative pics. It all looks a bit pink in the pictures, but it was red, and they were quite popular at the party. Smiley  Happy year of the rabbit!

Very festive and suits the theme! How did you make the pretty chrysanthemum shaped pics?

They also look so yummy!

I cut them out with a paper punch, using red patterned and gold scrapbook paper, and glued them with a toothpick in between, then added the Chinese zodiac stickers. Easy!
