Unicorn Poop Cupcakes

These cupcakes came out so cute! I was going to make the frosting blue to go with the snowflake wrappers I had but that felt too cold and wintery and I'm so sick of winter. I went for purple instead because it's more of a transition from winter to spring kind of color. Ha ha! That was my thought process anyway! I meant to make these cupcakes with white frosting and the sparkle sugar so that it looked like snow for the day after Christmas at my aunt and uncle's but then we didn't end up going because I was still feeling so much morning all day sickness. Then I thought I'd do pink frosting and make Valentine's cupcakes but never got around to buying milk. With the purple swirly frosting and sparkle sugar they ended up looking like shimmering unicorn poops, which is perfect. :)
