In a bowl, combine fondant, yellow gel food coloring, and red gel food coloring. Gently fold in until evenly tinted into a bright orange color.
Roll fondant into fifteen to eighteen 1-inch fondant spheres. Place an indent on the top of each sphere and press a toothpick vertically around the edge of the sphere to make lines resembling a pumpkin.
Using green and brown decorating icing, add leaves and a stem on top of each pumpkin fondant.
In a bowl, combine softened butter, icing sugar, and milk. Using an electric mixer, beat until smooth and fluffy.
Add 2 to 3 drops gel food coloring to buttercream frosting and continue to beat until evenly tinted.
Using a frosting bag, pipe the green buttercream on each cupcake. Decorate frosted cupcakes with 1 to 3 fondant pumpkins.
