Preheat oven to 180°C. Line 36 holes of three 1/3-cup (80ml) muffin pans with paper cases. Make cupcakes following packet directions. Cool completely.
Prepare the icing sachets from the cupcake packets. Spread 1 cupcake with a little icing. Top with yellow lollies. Divide the remaining icing into 3 equal portions and use liquid food colouring to tint blue, pink and purple. Spread over the remaining cupcakes.
