I know it's not technically a cookie but these holiday cupcakes were so much fun to make that I just had to share them with you! I absolutely loved the way they turned out. And how cute would these be on your holiday trays this year?
I just love the snowmen, so sparkly and fun!! The wreaths are super cute too. Oh wait, I love them all!! But today, I'm going to share how to make the snowman.
I used my favorite chocolate cake recipe which made about 2 1/2 dozen cupcakes. I made my favorite crusting buttercream recipe, try the Wilton Icing recipe, it's really good! Especially if you add a dash of almond extract. Yummy!
First, I did a small swirl with a Wilton number 12 tip and then smoothed it over with a Viva paper towel once the buttercream was set, about 2-3 minutes. And I went to work on the fun part, decorating!
To make the snowman, dip the cupcake into sanding sugar to give it that sparkly shine. Add two chocolate chip for the eyes, mini chocolate chips or sprinkles for the mouth, orange sprinkles or buttercream for the nose, and then make the earmuffs and band on the top of the cupcake. So easy and so darn cute!!
