Instructions
Snitches
  1. Line the bottom of two 12-cup muffin tins with paper liners.
  2. Prepare the cake mix according to package directions.
  3. Fill the cupcake liners 2/3 full of batter.
  4. Bake according to package directions.
Wings
  1. Melt the package of white melting chocolate according to package instructions.
  2. Spoon melted chocolate into a small Ziploc bag. Using a pair of kitchen scissors, cut an extremely small piece off a bottom corner of the bag.
  3. Cover a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Gently squeeze the Ziploc bag to pipe the shape of a wing. Use a butter knife to smooth the chocolate. Repeat process to create two wings per cupcake.
  4. Place the cookie sheet and parchment paper with wings into the freezer to harden.
Assembly
  1. Place 2/3 of frosting in bowl and add some yellow food coloring. Mix together and adjust color as necessary until it becomes the desired shade of gold.
  2. When the cupcakes are completely cooled, use a butter knife to spread the frosting over each cupcake.
  3. In a separate mixing bowl, mix the remaining uncolored frosting with yellow food coloring until it is a lighter gold color than the cupcake frosting.
  4. Spoon this frosting into another small Ziploc bag and cut the corner small as before.
  5. Gently squeeze this bag to pipe swirl patterns onto each cupcake.
  6. Take the hardened wings out of the freezer (they should easily peel away from the parchment paper). Use a dab of remaining frosting to stick two wings on the side of each cupcake. Enjoy!
