instructions

Bake a batch of cupcakes in our pretty blue snowflake cupcake cases, whatever flavour you like, and leave them to cool before decorating.

Making The Domed Toppers

1. A great way to get a lovely shape and finish for your cupcakes is to use foam cupcake balls. Dust your work surface with a little icing sugar and roll out a piece of navy blue sugarpaste to approximately 1mm-2mm thick. Use the 68mm round cutter to create a circle. You'll need 1 circle for every 1 cupcake.

2. Place the circle on top of one of the foam cupcake balls and use your fingertips to gently smooth and shape this around the dome.

Adding The Glitter

3. Now you have the base for your topper, it's time to add the glitter. Use a small amount of edible glue to coat the entire surface of the cupcake. Only use a little at a time - you can always add more as you go along if you need to (you don't want to make the sugarpaste gloopy).

4. Place the cupcake topper (still on top of the foam cupcake ball) in a bowl. This will help to catch any glitter, making it much easier to tidy up afterwards! Using a teaspoon, sprinkle the navy blue edible glitter over the cupcake topper until it is completely covered. Lift up the foam ball and gently tap it over the bowl to release any loose glitter.

5. Repeat this step for the other cupcake toppers.

Making The Snowflake Decorations

6. To make the snowflakes, roll out a piece of white sugarpaste to approximately 1mm thick. Use the snowflake plunger cutters to cut out a range of differently sized snowflakes.

7. Using the snowflake lustre dust and a sable brush, gently dust each snowflake to give it a lovely shimmering finish.

8. Dab the back of each snowflake with a little edible glue and stick these to the cupcake toppers. Vary the design by using as few or as many snowflakes as you like on each topper.

10. Leave the cupcake toppers to dry on the foam balls, preferably overnight.

Decorating The Cupcakes

11. Once the domed toppers have dried and everything is stuck into place, you can use these on your cupcakes. Using a 1M piping tip (or a spoon will do), pipe/ dab a blob of frosting in the centre of each cupcake. Carefully place the domed toppers onto each cupcake.

You've now successfully decorated the cupcakes and all that's left to do is eat and enjoy!
