Rated 4 out of 5 by from I made the snowflakes a few days ago and tried to take one off the wax paper. It broke almost immediately. Thanks goodness I made a bunch of extras! I'm thinking next time I'll use tip 5 so they're a little thicker. By the time I finished piping, the first part of the snowflake had already dried, so I brushed them ever so lightly with water to get the sugar and glitter to stick - it just get bouncing right off before I did that! I also left off the pearls, since they're hard and not nice to eat anyway. I used white sparkling sugar and edible glitter on them and they look beautiful. Just hoping they make it to my customer's destination intact!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I piped the snowflakes out of melted white chocolate and sprinkles them when wet with sparkling sugar (I skipped the pearls). You can't get quite the detail you can with royal icing but my snowflakes set quickly in the fridge, were easy to lift off and place firmly on the icing, and stayed perfect for days until consumed. This is a lovely winter cupcake and I will make them again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made these for a Christmas party and got rave reviews. They are very beautiful This was a real "trial and error" experience for me. I first made them with the #4 tip on wax paper, but found that they were too thin and were breaking. Next I made them with a #5 tip on wax paper...same situation; they were a little thicker but were still breaking. Finally, after a quick internet search (and with 5 hours until I needed them), I made them with the #5 on parchment paper and dried them under a fan. Success! I think next time I'll try the #4 on parchment paper. They were lovely with the #5, but I think they'd be a little prettier with the #4. I used sparkling sugar and left off the pearls. They taste fantastic and were a nice complement to my Swiss buttercream frosting. These are going to be a staple in my Christmas baking from now on!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love working with royal icing. This is going to be great for my upcoming holiday party. This is a fairly easy cupcake for an intermediate level. I believe that adding the sparkling dust to the snowflakes makes them really stand out . By adding a mint extract to the royal icing makes the snowflake tasty like winter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These are dazzling for holiday parties! The snowflakes can be made well ahead of time and also make great cookie, gingerbread, and cake decorations. We even did blue ones with blue pearls and they were just as stunning as the white. Always make more than you need, though, just in case...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I have used this technique on several cakes. It is very festive and not difficult at all - just takes some planning ahead. You need to make extra snowflakes because they do break easily - and I don't like the little "pearls" because they are too hard.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Made these last year for my neighbor for New Year's, but instead of royal icing, I used candy melts and they turned out great! After the candy set, they were able to be stood up straight on the cupcake for dimension and my neighbor loved them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love these cupcakes. The only thing is I dont put the round ball sprinkles, the pearlized sugar I think they are listed on here because they tend to be really hard when you bite into them. But other than that they are great.
