Cut the candy canes and cupcakes out of very thinly rolled fondant; note the cupcake bottoms are colors and the tops are white. Attach the candy canes and cupcake pieces to the circles using piping gel. With the small round tip and royal icing, detail the pieces. Assemble cupcake wraps and drop cupcakes into wraps.
