  • Divide batter among muffin cups. Bake 15 to 20 minutes, until puffed and golden. Cool pan on wire rack.

To Decorate:
  • Line 3 cookie sheets with wax paper. Microwave candy melts on High for 15 seconds. Stir; microwave at 10-second intervals until smooth. Spoon into a heavy resealable bag. Snip a corner and pipe twenty-four 2-1/2X2-inch pairs of fairy wings onto the sheets, leaving a stem at the bottom to insert into cupcake. Top with sparkles. Refrigerate until set, 5 minutes.

  • Poke two small holes in the top of each cupcake with a toothpick, and insert wings into cupcakes. Place coconut in between wings and sift on confectioners' sugar.
