Santa Cupcakes from Taste of Home

1 package white cake mix

1 can (2 cups) white frosting, divided

Red gel or paste food coloring

Minature marshmallows

Chocolate chips

Red-hot candies

Flaked coconut

Bake cupcakes. Cool completely. Place 2/3 cup frosting in a small bowl; tint with red food coloring. Set aside 3 tablespoons white frosting for decorating. Cover two-thirds of the top of each cupcake with remaining white frosting. Frost the rest of cupcake top with red frosting for hat. Place reserved white frosting in a small heavy-duty re-sealable plastic bag; cut a 1/4-in. hole in one corner. On each cupcake, pipe a line of frosting to create fur band of hat. Press a marshmallow on one side of hat for pom-pom. Under hat, place two chocolate chips for eyes and one red-hot for nose. Gently press coconut onto face for beard.
