  • 1 to 2 cans vanilla frosting (16 ounces each)
  • Cupcakes of your choice
  • Clear decorating sugar
  • Pencil, paper, scissors and waxed paper
  • White candy coating
  • Blue decorating sugar and edible glitter


  1. Frost cupcakes, reserving some frosting for decorating as desired.
  2. For snowflake cupcakes: Place clear decorating sugar in a small shallow bowl; roll top edge of each cupcake in sugar to form a decorative rim. Set aside.
  3. With a pencil and paper, draw assorted snowflake designs. Cut into individual patterns. Melt candy coating in a microwave-safe bowl; stir until smooth. Transfer to a resealable plastic bag; cut a small hole in corner of bag. Place waxed paper over the drawings and pipe candy coating over designs. Sprinkle with blue decorating sugar and edible glitter. Refrigerate until set.
  4. Gently lift candy flakes from waxed paper; arrange snowflakes on cupcakes. Sprinkle with additional edible glitter.
