To make hooks, trace pattern on waxed paper and pipe using tip 5 and royal icing tinted Red-Red/ Christmas Red combination or Kelly Green. Paint buttons and facial features in gingerbread boy mold with melted candy; refrigerate until firm.
Fill mold halfway with melted cocoa candy; refrigerate until firm and unmold.
Bake and cool cupcakes using silicone cups supported by cookie sheet. Ice smooth in white or green buttercream. Decorate cupcakes with tip 3 swirls or outlines in Red-Red/Christmas Red. Cut marshmallows to 1/2 in. high. Poke hole with knife and insert hook. Attach to cupcake with buttercream.

I made these with my children. While I found it easy and a lot of fun. They were a little frustrated with the marshmallow cutting. I did the hole for the hook. The kids had a lot of fun coming up with other ways to decorate using fruit roll cut outs, candy, and colored sugar and stencils.
