How to make pirate cupcakes

These pirate treasure map cupcakes would be a perfect fit at any pirate party! They’re just adorable (and funny, too – something about the little bottles marked “XX” cracks me up!). I thought that the decorations would be store-bought, but surprisingly, all of the little toppers are actually homemade from common candies: red and black licorice, fruit chews, fruit roll-ups, root beer barrels, a Hershey bar, and a red M&M. So you can actually decorate these cupcakes totally from scratch… and then take all the credit for how wonderfully cute and crafty they are. ; ) Get the decorating instructions at Duncan Hines.
