  1. Bake the cupcakes according to the box directions.

  4. Slowly add in the powdered sugar, and milk as needed, until everything is incorporated and frosting is the right consistency.
  5. Add several drops of green food coloring and whip a few more minutes to get an even color.
  6. Roughly ice cupcakes to resemble grass.
