Let's get started!

  1. Preheat 325F.  Line half the muffin tin with black liners and white liners.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the cake mix, water and vegetable oil with a hand mixer until well combined.
  3. Add the eggs and mix again.
  4. Fill the liners about 2/3 full. Bake for about 18 minutes. Let it cool completely.

Time to decorate!

  1. Take the cupcakes with the black liners, pipe a dollop of icing and place a peppermint mini on top.
  2. Take the frosting and tint one bowl black, leave the other untinted. Lightly melt in the microwave until smooth.
  3. Dip the black liner cupcakes in the black frosting and the white liner cupcakes in the white frosting.
  4. Place a red strip of licorice on top of the black cupcake.
  5. Pipe a thin layer of white frosting around the edge of the white cupcakes and place a pink gum ball on top.
  6. Place the black frosting in a piping bag fitted with a piping tip for better control and draw the faces.
