Rated 4 out of 5 by from I made this cupcake but i put a new twist on it.i made the meringue snowflakes a head of time with parchment paper and then i layed them flat on the cupcake then i out some sugar in a zip lock baggie and put some blue food coloring in it shook it up (made sure it was darker then the icing on the cupcakes)and sprinkled them on the cupcake. it was a perfect center piece for a holiday winter party.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love these cupcakes! They are super cute! Day 1- Royal Icing, I divided the Wilton recipe for royal icing and just made 1/3 of a recipe. This was enough for 35 one sided snowflakes and 8 sets of "2011"s. I only made 1/3 of a recipe so I didnt have to worry about storing the royal icing until the next day and wanted to be able to start fresh. It was a little bit too thick so I added little extra water to the make it about the consistency of toothpaste. I also found the size 2 tip to difficult to squeeze the icing through and I used a size 4 tip instead. I did use the wax paper sprayed lightly with Wilton Pan Spray and then wiped off with a papertowel. The first few I did were still too thin and started cracking as soon as they started to dry and I went ahead and went over those immediately. I also sprinkled each one with white sparkle sugar immediately after piping. From start to finish today was just a little over an hour. Day 2- Made another 1/3rd recipe of the Wilton Royal icing to pipe the other side. Handle these snowflakes with very light hands. I flipped them over with a piece of paper and that worked well. I only ended up breaking one of them. The second side was very easy to do. Start to finish this day was just an hour. Day 3- Made the cupcakes frosted in light blue, dipped those in white sparkling sugar. I pre-poked a hole with a kabob stick for the snowflakes and placed the little 2011s that I had made in front of the snowflakes. They turned out beautiful! I love them!
