How To Make It
  • 1

    Remove cupcake liners from the mini-cupcakes and place them, bottom-up, on waxed paper. Frost the bottom and sides of the mini cupcakes with red and white decorator icing. Frost half the cupcake white and half red, to create the look of a baseball cap. Place a red cinnamon candy in the center of each cap.

    While placing frosted caps in the refrigerator to firm them up, top regular-sized cupcakes with the frosting of your choice (we used vanilla). This is a fun job for kids. Let them use a small spatula -- whipped frostings are light and easy to spread.

    Use red decorator's icing to pipe a red half circle on top of the frosted cupcake -- this will be the bill of Manny's cap.

    Remove the caps from the refrigerator and place them, bottoms-up, on top of the larger cupcakes. Be sure to line the white side of the cap with the edge of the red half-circle, creating a hat with a bill -- just like Manny's.
