Cowboy Cupcakes Red licorice Sugar-coated jelly candies (like large thimbles) Pringle chips Brown string To form the band around the hat, cut the licorice to the length for it to go around the jelly candy. Press the ends of the licorice so they stick together. Place a chip flat on top of each cupcake, tilt slightly forward. Using a small amount of ganache, position a candy, taking care to place the knot at the back of the hat. Wrap a piece of string around the cupcake as a lasso.
