Best-selling authors of the book Hello, Cupcake!, Karen Tack & Alan Richardson, spent a few days with us creating one-of-a-kind beauties that you can make at home—no special tools or talents required. Just bake your favorite cupcakes, have your favorite vanilla icing on hand and HAVE FUN!

Ingredients

  • 1 to 2 cans vanilla frosting (16 ounces each)
  • Cupcakes of your choice
  • SNOWMEN:
  • Coarse sugar
  • Chocolate wafers
  • semisweet chocolate chips and miniature semisweet chocolate chips
  • Orange candy slices
  • Additional vanilla frosting
  • Blue food coloring, pearl dragees, blue jumbo diamond sprinkles and edible glitter, optional

Directions

  • Frost cupcakes, reserving some frosting for decorating as desired.
  • For snowmen cupcakes: Dip the top of each cupcake in coarse sugar; gently shake off excess sugar. For stovepipe hats, microwave chocolate wafers for a few seconds to slightly soften as needed. Use a serrated knife to cut two narrow strips from opposite sides of each wafer. (Large center piece will form crown of hat; one strip will form the brim.)
  • Add chips and mini chips to cupcake to form eyes and mouth. Cut a small piece of orange slice to form the nose.
  • Stick brim of hat, rounded side up, into top of cupcake; insert hat crown into the top edge. Secure with additional frosting. Color frosting if desired; place in a resealable plastic bag. Cut a small hole in corner of bag. Pipe a decorative hat band; add dragees and sprinkles if desired. Sprinkle cupcakes with glitter if desired. Yield: varies.
