Disney's Frozen Cupcake Idea....

Here is a creation that I made from the inspiration of Disney's Frozen. The cupcakes are white vanilla with a snowy blue frosting and topped with a white chocolate snowflake.
 
Here is a close up of the cupcakes....
 
 
How to make the White Chocolate Snowflakes...
 
  1. Create a template of the size and design of the snowflake you want to create.
  2.  Place the template paper underneath a piece of wax or parchment paper, I taped the template and wax paper to a cookie sheet so it was easier to transport to the freezer after I piped them .
  3. Melt white chocolate chips in a double broiler, or in the microwave until completely melted.
  4. Place the melted white chocolate into a sandwich bag with a tip cut off, or use a thin Wilton piping tip to pipe the melted white chocolate on top of the wax paper. Careful, the white chocolate will be hot, so you may want to let it cool for a little bit before you pipe it so you don't burn your hands :0)
  5. I sprinkled granulated sugar onto the top of the still wet, piped snowflakes to give them a frosty look.
  6. Let set and cool, or place them in the fridge/freezer to harden before topping them onto your cupcakes.
***** Tip: Leave the snowflakes in the freezer until the last possible minute before you place them onto your finished cupcakes because they soften very quickly, this helps lessen the chance of your snowflakes cracking or snapping while you are assembling your cupcakes.

    1. Hi Heidi,

      I'm so sorry for the unclear details about the snowflakes, I just updated the post and added better instructions on how to make the snowflakes by hand. I also added a picture of the template that I created, so you should be able to click on the picture and print it out to use for your own snowflakes.

  4. Do you think I could use the Wilton Candy Melts for this or it really needs to be white chocolate? Thanks

    1. Hi Naomie,

      Wilton Candy Melts will work great too. The consistencies of the two after they are melted are so similar that it shouldn't make a difference. Great substitution idea for the white chocolate! Good luck with your cupcake toppers!
