When I mentioned this to my friends, one suggested that I make the cupcakes actually look like a sunrise by dying them pink and orange. This opportunity was too good to pass up. After hunting around for modifiable recipes, I came up with my recipe...

We have two cupcakes... but only one can become a HERO.

The worthy contenders:

It was a very close vote, as you can see from the poll results on the right side of the page.
