instructions

Before you begin to decorate your cupcakes, you're going to need to bake the perfect batch! So whip up some of your finest cupcakes (any flavour) and leave them to cool.

Creating The Snowflakes

1. Take a piece of white sugarpaste and roll this out to approximately 2mm thick. If you want your snowflakes to set hard, then knead in a little gum tragacanth before rolling out the sugarpaste.

2. Cut out several snowflake shapes using the small and medium snowflake plunger cutters. You can choose to decorate these using a selection of dragees and non-parelis for extra detail and texture. Simply push each decoration into the snowflake or use a little edible glue to secure.

Piping The Frosting

3. Now you need to prepare your frosting. For the snowflake cupcakes, we've coloured our frosting a very pale shade of blue. To do this, use a cocktail stick and take a very small amount of Sugarflair baby blue paste colour and add this to your frosting. Use a spoon or palette knife to stir the colour into the frosting until it's fully mixed in.

4. Once you're happy with the colour, put the frosting into your piping bag with your 1M tip attached. Starting in the centre of your cupcake, pipe a tall swirl of frosting. Repeat this step on half of the remaining cupcakes and save the other half for your alternative design.

5. Sprinkle a little edible glitter over the frosting, followed by a few white non-parelis.

6. Finally, place the snowflakes you created earlier on top of the frosting.

Making The Ice Decorations

7. Place the isomalt balls into a microwavable bowl and follow the instructions on the back of the packet. If you want your isomalt to be blue in colour rather than clear, then once the isomalt has melted add a little blue colouring using a cocktail stick and stir this into the mixture before it sets.

8. Once melted, instantly pour the isomalt onto a non-stick mat. If you want your frozen chards to be more like icicles, then as you're pouring the mixture gently move the bowl around to create shapes on your mat. Leave the isomalt to set (this doesn't take long at all!)

9. Again, pipe a tall swirl shape using the 1M tip and a piping bag. Here we've left our vanilla frosting a lovely cream colour to compliment the overall design, but you can choose whatever colour frosting you like!

10. Break off pieces of isomalt and place these into your cupcakes as appropriate. Please note that isomalt is not suitable for children and is very brittle and hard when solid.

So now you've made your Frozen cupcakes, why not use the remaining isomalt on a matching Frozen themed cake? Perfect for birthdays and very realistic! (Just don't forget to remove the 'ice' before serving).
