To make cookies into cupcake toppers start by "gluing" a stick to the back of each decorated cookie with super thick royal icing and let it dry. I used craft/popsicle sticks but you could use lollipop sticks or something similar. Cover the cupcakes with dots of yellow frosting.
Oddly, my local craft stores don't sell black cupcake wrappers year round so I cut simple cupcake wrappers out of black paper and wrapped the decorated cupcakes to make them look like little pots.
I also made a few rainbow royal icing transfers to put on a couple cupcakes too.
Once the icing "glue" has dried gently push the cookies into the cupcakes and you're done!
If you don't happen to have time to make cookies (gasp) I made a printable cupcake topper for you!

Save the full size image and print it out on white card stock. Be sure to print them in landscape orientation so they'll fit on a page. Cut out the shapes and tape a sandwich pick or small lollipop stick to the back of each to turn them into a cupcake topper!
Stick them in your cupcakes and have a Happy St. Patrick's Day!
