Rated 5 out of 5 by cfox2009 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!
