Ingredients

  • 1 to 2 cans vanilla frosting (16 ounces each)
  • Cupcakes of your choice
  • STAR:
  • Clear decorating sugar
  • Miniature silver dragees, optional
  • Nonstick foil or parchment paper
  • Blue, clear and/ or white hard candies
  • Additional vanilla frosting
  • Blue decorating sugar

Directions

  1. Frost cupcakes, reserving some frosting for decorating as desired.
  2. For star cupcakes: Place clear decorating sugar in a small shallow bowl; stir in miniature dragees if desired. (Dragees are not edible and are for decorative use only.) Roll top edge of each cupcake in sugar to form a decorative rim. Set aside.
  3. Line a 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan with nonstick foil. Crush candies in desired color to yield about 1 cup. Place in prepared pan, spreading candy to about 1/4-in. thickness. Bake at 350° for 3-5 minutes or until melted. Meanwhile, coat 6-8 metal star-shaped cookie cutters with cooking spray.
  4. Remove pan from the oven; press prepared cutters into melted candy. Let stand until just before candy is set; remove cutters. (Reheat scraps in the oven if desired.)
  5. Add frosting to a small resealable plastic bag; cut a small hole in corner of bag. Pipe frosting around edges of stars; top with decorating sugars and miniature dragees as desired. Press stars onto top of cupcake; secure with additional frosting if needed. Yield: varies.
