Royal Icing
Milano Cookies
Cream cheese or desired icing
Crushed Oreos
Food Coloring

Bake cupcakes as directed and allow to cool.

Use royal icing to pipe "RIP" on the milano cookies - set aside to dry

Once cupcakes have cooled cut a small slit in the top and place the cookie upright.

Ice the cupcakes. I used a tip made for hair and or grass.

Sprinkle a small amount of crushed Oreos infront of the tombstone.

Use a small knife or spoon to make a small bowl in the oreo crumbs.

Dip the base of a marzipan hand in green icing and place in the "dirt".

Touch up with dirt as needed to cover the icing glue.
