Makes: 4 kinds of Pupcakes

These ingredients will make multiples of each breed; repeat directions for each variety, working in batches to save time. Since many candies come in bags, you will need only one package of each.

* Vanilla frosting (at least 3 cans)

* Chocolate frosting

* Yellow, brown, and blue food coloring (at baking supply stores)

* Soft caramels

* Brown mini candy-coated chocolates (such as M&M Minis)

* Marshmallows

* Pink decorating sugar

* Thin chocolate cookies (such as Nabisco Famous Chocolate Wafers)

* Chocolate taffy (such as Tootsie Rolls)

* Mini chocolate-covered mints (such as Junior Mints)

* Strawberry and cherry fruit chews (such as Starbursts)

* Mini marshmallows

* Small red and black jelly beans
