In their flights around and about the English countryside where Lizzy lives in Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue, Tinker Bell and the other fairies share the air space with a host of other winged creatures, including honeybees, butterflies, and — perhaps the most talented flying acrobats of all — dragonflies. Much like mini helicopters, these colorful insects are most often found hovering alongside streams and ponds. Or, in the case of this candy variety, sweetly perched atop a batch of cupcakes.

Frost the cupcakes.
Cut the Sour Punch Straws into 2-inch lengths and place one length atop each cupcake for the dragonfly bodies. Press the front of each body a bit deeper into the frosting than the tail end.
Place an M&Ms candy at the head of each dragonfly body.
Arrange four Swedish Fish candies behind each dragonfly head to resemble two sets of wings.
