Add the 1 cup of water, the vegetable oil and coconut oil. Continue mixing until well combined.
Add the cake mix and change the mixer to the beater attachment. Continue mixing on medium speed for two minutes.
Spoon the cake batter into prepared cupcake papers. Bake in heated oven 15-18 minutes, until done.
Frost cooled cupcakes with white frosting. and sprinkle with flaked coconut. Set aside.
Color the rest of the frosting with green food coloring, using enough to achieve the desired color of green. Use a butter knife to spread the green frosting over the sugar cone, gently pulling the knife away to create wisps, resembling tree branches. Make these random so it will look natural.
Place a green icing-coated cone on each cupcake. Place a yellow Skittle at the top of each cone, attaching it with an extra dollop of frosting. While the frosting is still soft, add candied decorations to make it look like decorated Christmas trees.
