Prepare your cupcakes according to box’s directions. Allow to cool completely before decorating.
Using an electric mixer, beat butter, confectioners’ sugar and milk on high. These ingredients will make your buttercream. Continue mixing on high until buttercream forms stiff peaks.
Using a piping bag, frost each of your cupcakes.
Take 12 of your cupcakes and draw some squiggles with your blue gel frosting. Do the same with your other 12 cupcakes with your green gel frosting.
To form the fondant crayons: roll out spheres that are about 1.5 inches in diameter. Roll each one out into a cylindrical form. Pinch one end to create the “tip” of the crayon.
Using a toothpick and your black gel frosting, draw two thin black lines on each crayon.
Place one fondant crayon on each cupcake (with its respective squiggle color, of course!).
