1. Whip up some buttercream icing (recipe here) in a plain colour (or colour of your choice), then pipe onto your cupcakes using a star-tip icing nozzle.

3. Place waffle ice cream cones on top of each cupcake, pushing them into the icing slightly so they sit firmly.

4. Colour the rest of the icing green using icing colour, then use the same nozzle to pipe the icing onto the cone in star shapes. To form a star without the peaks, hold the icing bag at a 90 degree angle to the surface between 3mm and 6mm (1/8th and ¼ inch) away from it. Squeeze the bag to form a star. Stop squeezing and pull the bag straight out.

5. Decorate with cachous and a fondant star at the top.
