Pipe the buttercream in a swirl onto the cupcakes by using a large round tip. Draw a black line around the surface of the frosting. Attach the M&Ms vertically into the side of the cupcakes.

To cook these light cupcakes, Bree personally uses store-bought cake mix and buttercream as well as frosting. However, if you are in some advanced cooking spirit, the buttercream frosting can also be prepared from the scratch at your home.
