Taco Cupcakes are Fun, Adorable, & Delicious!

Ingredients

13 cupcakes
2 to 3 cups vanilla frosting
24 Nilla Wafers (2 for each cupcake)
Yellow jimmies
Green frosting (I used canned frosting with the leaf tip, similar to Wilton Tip 67)
Red Mini M&Ms

You will also need:

Large open star tip (Wilton 1M Open Star Piping Tip)
Piping bag
Cupcake liners

Instructions

Pipe frosting over cupcake in a circular direction working from the outer edge of the cupcake towards the center.

Gently crumble one cupcake into pieces. Set aside.

Place two Nilla Wafers into the top of each cupcake, pressing down into the cupcake at an angle to resemble a taco shell.

Inside the Nilla Wafer, add about 1 teaspoon crumbled cupcake.

Over the crumbled cupcake (taco meat), decorate with green icing to create the look of lettuce.
