How to make karaoke birthday cupcakes

What you’ll need:

- Vanilla cake mix
- Cupcake pan
- Foil cupcake wrappers
- Vanilla icing
- Red food colouring
- Mini ice cream cones
- Pink licorice pastels
- Plain doughnut holes
- Edible silver sprinkles

How to make it:

1. Mix a few drops of red food colouring into the vanilla icing to make it light pink.

2. Put ¼ cup of the icing into a sealed zip bag and poke a hole into one of the corners.

3. Poke a hole in the bottom of each mini cone with a toothpick.

4. Squeeze icing from the zip bag and put a bit into each ice cream cone hole. Place each piece of pink licorice into each ice cream cone hole, to look like a cordless microphone antenna - the icing will help it stick into place.

5. Add some more frosting on the inside rim of each cone, then place a doughnut inside.

6. Spread frosting over each doughnut, then dip it into a bowl filled with sprinkles.

7. Bake the cupcakes using the directions on the cake mix box.  Once they’ve cooled, frost each one with pink icing and place a cone microphone on the top.
