  1. Place each color candy melt (except milk chocolate) in a separate ziptop bag. Line 2 baking sheets with wax paper. Working with 1 color at a time, heat in microwave on high about 1 minute until wafers melt.

  2. Cut a tiny tip off 1 bottom corner of bag and pipe about one hundred 3⁄4- to 1-in.-long teardrop shapes onto a lined baking sheet (see photo, above). Repeat with each color. Refrigerate until needed.

  3. Spoon 1⁄2 cup frosting into a ziptop bag; set aside. Tint remaining frosting light green. Spread evenly on top of cupcakes.

  4. Peeling petals from wax paper as you go, arrange 6 or 7 flowers, 5 petals (flat side up) for each, on each cupcake.

  5. Melt chocolate candy melts in a small bowl in microwave. With paintbrush, paint chocolate on petals from center out. Snip a small corner from bag with white frosting and pipe a dab in center of each flower. Glue 3 small candies in center. Cut top of green cupcake liners in a zigzag fashion; set decorated cupcake in each. *Available in stores selling party and cake decorating supplies.
