  • 1 package white cake mix (regular size)
  • 2 cans (16 ounces each) vanilla frosting
  • Assorted jimmies
  • Green, white and red Air Heads candies

  • Prepare and bake cake batter according to package directions for cupcakes. Cool completely.
  • Frost cupcakes and sprinkle with jimmies. If necessary, microwave candies on high for 3- to 5-second intervals to soften. Form green candies into champagne bottles. Cut squares from white candies to form labels; press gently onto bottles to attach. Brush bottle tops with pearl dust.
  • Shape white candy into champagne flutes. Cut thin strips of red candies; twist to form streamers. Decorate cupcakes with bottles, champagne flutes and streamers as desired. Store in an airtight container.
