Decorated cupcakes can be stored in refrigerator up to 8 hours before serving.

If You Don't Have a Pastry Bag

Fill a resealable plastic food storage bag with pudding mixture; seal bag. Cut corner off bottom of bag, then squeeze pudding mixture from bag onto cupcakes.

How to Make Pink Food Colouring

If you don't have pink food colouring, you can make your own by adding 3 drops red food colouring and 2 drops yellow food colouring to the pudding mixture with the Cool Whip.
