1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line muffin tins with 24 cupcake liners.

2.Prepare cupcakes according to box instructions. Let cool completely.  

3.Take one tub of frosting and color it a dull orange using orange and brown food coloring. Spread onto each cupcake, making sure it is level. 

4.Remove a third of the second tub of frosting and set aside. To the remaining two thirds, add yellow and brown food coloring to get a nice tan color. Place a petal tip into a piping bag and fill with fan frosting. Pipe a ruffle edge to resemble a crust. 

5.Place a small star tip into a piping bag. Fill the bag with remaining, un-colored frosting. Pipe a swirl into the center of the cupcake to mimic whipped cream. Enjoy!
