how to make piggy cupcakes
you will need:

step two: make and frost cupcakes
Place shredded coconut in a sealable baggie and add a few drops of green food coloring. Shake the sealed back well to tint the coconut. Top cupcakes with frosting that has been tinted green. Immediately press the green coconut on top of the icing.
step three: assemble your cupcakes
Simply insert the lollipop stick into the cupcake.
