Next, when the cupcakes are cooled down, use a piping bag to decorate the top of then sponges with a butter cream swirl. Using different coloured sprinkles, sread over the top of the cupcakes. Use a `D` and `A` cutter to cut out letters with sugar paste and place on top of the cupcakes, along with small black sugar paste moustaches.
