Snowflake Cupcake: A Winter Treat

These snowflake cupcakes are a winter treat that goes with a hot cup of coffee or a cold glass of milk. Either way, you’ll love them.

Hi everyone, It’s Erica from Messy Momma Crafts here to bring you another easy recipe. Winter has arrived in Michigan and I think it’s here to stay. Several inches of fresh, big snowflakes fell yesterday. Leaving us with many inches of powder to play in. That’s what inspired me to make these Snowflake Cupcakes as a fun winter treat.

These cupcakes are the perfect treat to have after building a snowman, sledding or if you’re missing the snow in the south.

How to Make my snowflake cupcakes

I love using boxed cake/cupcake mix in my recipes, it makes things so much easier for me. If you have a favorite recipe, by all means, use it.

TIME-SAVING TOOLS FROM THE GROCERY STORE:

I love using cake mix and canned frosting from the grocery store but that doesn’t mean you have to. If you have a favorite recipe of your own, make sure to use it.

For the snowflakes that top the cupcakes, you can use light blue candy melts or mix a little blue food coloring with some white chocolate, either way, they’ll look amazing.

Candy Melt tips and tricks

Always heat candy melts in small increments on 50% power, this way the candy melts are likely to stay soft.

If they happen to harden up, just add a teaspoon of Crisco, toss back in the microwave for 10 seconds and mix.

Frost cupcakes just like a bakery with a can of frosting.

Tips for using a decorating bag

Open your decorating bag up, place it inside a tall glass and fold the edges over the side of the glass to create an open bag for the frosting to go into.

If you’re filling the bag with a thick substance like cake frosting, cut the tip off the decorating bag before you place the tip in the bag.
