In a mixing bowl, cream butter and icing sugar together until smooth and a spreadable consistency is achieved.
Set aside some plain color icing to spread on the surface of cupcake.
Add a few drops of green food coloring to the remaining butter icing and stir until color is well mixed.
Place the green butter icing into a piping bag with a small star tip/nozzle. If necessary, use a serrated knife to trim top of each cupcake to create a flat surface. Spread the surface of each cupcake with plain butter icing and position an ice-cream cone (upside down) on top.
With the piping bag in one hand, pipe around the cone from bottom to top. Sprinkle with colorful sugar decoration.
