Spend all day making colored mini cupcakes, cut in half, colored icing to stick 2 tops back together (saw this on another website, looked like a cute idea, sort of egg shaped for Easter). I also stuck 2 bottoms togther the same way, the problem is, it looks totally stupid & I was going to send them to school for my daughter's birthday on Wednesday! How can I fix this? I was thinking somehow covering with spinkles or something, but how to get them to stick without being too messy(to the eater) and without spending more money on this disaster...Help! I have 2 days to fix this.

Coat them with glaze (it's like royal icing, but with a little bit of corn syrup - there's a recipe on here) and roll them in lots of sprinkles, so that they're totally coated. The cupcakes will be well covered and the glaze will firm up by Wednesday, so there shouldn't be such a mess.

Sorry, I totally blew it! What I meant to say was to use glacé, not glaze. It has corn syrup INSTEAD of egg whites or meringue powder. The recipe I use is Toba Garett's, and it's here in the recipe section.
