Step 4-Using the same knife to make the frosting look spiky by patting it up and down on the frosting. Step 5-Take the bag of brown frosting and cut out a small hole in one corner. Squeeze the frosting out this hole. Draw in some eyes and mouth on one cupcake. Draw spots on the rest of the cupcakes. Step 6- Place the cupcakes on a tray in a lazy "s" formation.
