For the frosting: ✓ ½ cup of shortening ✓ ½ cup of butter ✓ 1 teaspoon of vanilla ✓ 2 tablespoons of milk ✓ 4 cups of powdered sugar ✓ Green food dye


Preheat the oven to 350°F. Prepare the cake mix according to package instruc- tions. Fill black cupcake liners 2/3 of the way full with batter. Bake cupcakes for approximately 15 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. For the frosting, combine the shortening, butter, vanilla and milk in a


large bowl. Beat with an electric mixer until smooth. Slowly add the powdered sugar and mix until well combined. Add green food dye a little at a time, while continuing to mix, until the frosting reaches the desired color. To decorate the cupcakes, spoon the frosting into a piping bag (or use a plastic bag with the corner cut off). Fit the bag with a grass tip (available in many supermarkets or online for about $1). To make hair, apply pressure to the bag, starting below the edge of the cupcake. Continue to pipe upward, draping the frosting on top of the cupcake and pressing down to attach it at the center. Continue to pipe hair un- til the cupcake is covered; the hair can be different lengths for a messy look. Place half of an Oreo on the center of the cup- cake. Use a small amount of frosting to attach the Hershey’s kiss to the Oreo. Use a small round piping tip to pipe a border around the edge of the kiss.
