Directions

Watch how to make this recipe.

Special equipment: Chinese food boxes

Place 1 to 3 cupcakes in each Chinese food box. Depending on the size of your cupcakes, you may need to cut some in half. You want to try to have the top of the box completely filled by

cupcake. 

Dye some vanilla frosting with brown decorating icing to a light brown color and place in a pipette bag. Cut the end of the pipette bag to the size you want the noodles to be. Then, pipe the frosting in noodle shapes across the top of the cupcakes in each box until you can no longer see them. Cut the orange candies into quarters (for carrots) and place on top of the noodles. Arrange 4 to 5 green candies (for peas) on top of the noodles in each box.
