    Directions

    1. Preheat the oven to 325°F. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with paper liners. Mix flour, baking powder and baking soda in a large bowl. Beat eggs in a medium bowl. Stir in granulated sugar, vanilla extract, oil and sour cream. Add to the flour mixture and stir until well mixed. Divide among the muffin cups.
    2. Bake for 20-25 mins, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool in pan 5 minutes. Remove from pan; cool completely on wire rack.
    3. For the frosting, mix powdered sugar and lemon juice until well blended. Stir in milk to desired spreading consistency. Remove 2 tbsp of the frosting and tint red with food coloring. Cover with plastic wrap. Spread the white frosting on the cupcakes. Decorate with M&M's for the nose. Let stand to allow frosting to dry.
    4. Use the decorating icing to draw eyes and smiley mouths. Spoon the red frosting into a piping bag fitted with a small plain tip. Pipe cheeks and hair on the clown faces. Let stand to allow frosting to dry.
