Mine came from Michael’s Craft Store around Easter. Those I found online are brighter.

This should be enough for a dozen cupcakes. To stretch it, use soil from the nursery pots that the cacti came in. Place it in the bottom of the muffin liners and conceal with a layer of pumice, then top the pumice with sand.
