MYO Sparkling Frosty the Snowman Cupcakes

Add a little sparkle to your holiday celebration with these adorable, sparkling frosty the snowman cupcakes!

Sparkling Frosty the Snowman Cupcakes

You’ll Need:
1 cake mix (any flavor you want, chocolate, vanilla, red velvet, etc)
Cupcake Liners
Sparkling Sugar Crystals
Vanilla Frosting (or buttercream frosting, recipe below)
Chocolate chips (Mini’s work fine)
Butterscotch Chips

Bake the cupcakes according to the package (or recipe) directions. Let them cool completely before frosting them. Frost them with your favorite vanilla or buttercream frosting and then immediately invert them into a shallow bowl filled with sparkling sugar crystals. Ensure even coverage of the entire face.

Add the face, you can use butterscotch chips for the nose. If you don’t have sugar crystals you could use shredded coconut for the “snow” effect.

Buttercream Frosting

You’ll Need:
For the Buttercream Filling
1 1/2 stick of soft butter
3 cups Powdered Sugar
2 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

In a medium mixing bowl, beat the soft (but NOT melted) butter with half of the powdered sugar and 1 tsp of the vanilla, once fully blended add more powdered sugar and the remaining vanilla until white and fluffy. We recommend using an electric mixer or stand mixer, otherwise, your arm will get really tired!

  1. I adore these Sparkling Snowman Cupcakes! We always celebrate Christmas in July with family members that can’t visit over the wintertime and these sparkling cupcakes the perfect heat-friendly dessert to add to our tradition.

    I use white diamond dust for an excellent glistening snow effect on cookies and candies. It comes in multiple colors and looks like real glitter when applied, but it’s completely edible. I think it would add an extra level of depth if mixed with the wilton white sugar crystals.
