Tips  

Didn’t use up all of the frosting and decorations? Spread leftover cookies with frosting for a sweet treat.

To make ahead, bake and freeze the unfrosted cupcakes for up to three months. Frost and decorate the frozen cupcakes, and let thaw at room temperature.

Soften the taffy candy in the microwave on High for 5 to 7 seconds to make it easier to flatten.

Make the candy decorations up to a day ahead. They will be easier to work with if they have some time to hold their shape.
