  2. Beat cream cheese, butter, vanilla and food colouring in medium bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Gradually add sugar, beating well after each addition.
  3. Arrange cupcakes on large serving platter or tray to resemble a witch's head; spread with frosting. Use decorating gel to outline the mouth and hat on the cupcakes. Finely crush 11 of the cookies; sprinkle inside mouth and hat. Cut remaining cookie crosswise in half; place on cupcakes for the eyes. Place marshmallows in mouth for teeth. Arrange licorice to resemble eyebrows and nose. Store in refrigerator.
