Pixie Cakes

1 box angel food cake mix
1/4 tsp. almond extract

Preheat oven to 350. Line 24 muffin cups. Prepare cake mix according to package directions. Stir in almond extract. Divide batter among muffin cups. Bake 15-20 minutes.

2 c. blue candy melts (wilton.com)(I think that you could use chocolate or white chocolate for this, even mix some food coloring with the white chocolate while it's melted.)
decorating sugar, or raw sugar
1 c. flaked coconut
2 tbsp. powdered sugar

Line 3 cookie sheets with wax paper. Microwave candy melts on high 15 seconds. Stir, microwave at 10 second intervals until smooth. Spoon into resealable bag. Snip a corner and pipe 24 2" pairs of wings onto the sheets, leaving a stem at the bottom to insert into cupcakes.  Top with sugar. Refrigerate until set, 5 minutes.
Poke 2 small holes in the top of each cupcake with a toothpick, and insert wings into cupcakes. Place coconut in between wings and sift on powdered sugar.
