For the tombstone cupcakes, I used milano mint cookies cut in half and pipped RIP on half on the cookie. Then I died coconut bright green. Used Oreo crumbs for the dirt and candy pumpkins for the graveyard. I pipped chocolate frosting, with a chocolate cupcake, and filled with mint frosting, that I dyed the same color as the grass.
All of these were very easy to do, and turned out cute!
