Horse Cupcakes

Horse Cupcake

This "recipe" obviously strays from my usual goal of providing healthy recipes, but it's my horse's 26th birthday today!  I used to provide pony parties at my riding school, and these cupcakes were ever present for the festivities.  Have pony, will party!

frosting the desired colors of the "ponies"
Bugles brand corn chips, for ears
chocolate chips or dark colored candies for eyes
small (1 1/2") peppermint patties for brown horse noses
