Your homemade cupcakes will be even more tempting when you add a pretty peak of icing on top! We used tip 2A here, but any large round tip will work.

Snowflake Dipped Cupcakes is rated 1.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from What is the magic trick? lol no way can this work. I tried different stages of freezing (as if it matters). A cupcake chilled for 15 mins., one froze for 30 mins, one froze for 45 mins, and one froze for an hour. None turned out. Dipping frozen buttercream into warm candy melt, tends to melt the buttercream! It turned from pretty frozen mountains of buttercream into a ball of glob. And I used the bright white candy melts which melt thick. I thinned it out some and worked fast because I did not want it to thicken back. I absolutely do not understand how the buttercream in the video keeps its form? I understand that it wont be the same perfect shape and will round some edges, but no way could I get it to work. If someone can tell me what i did wrong, Ill retry and possibly change my review! I used the wilton candy melter pot with the bright white melts.
