Raspberry White Chocolate Snowflake Cupcakes

10 Feb

Here in Kansas City, it is most certainly still winter. We were lucky to receive over 9 inches of snow at my house last week and just to top it off, got another inch yesterday. It’s been good times. What’s the upside? When you’re trapped inside, there’s nothing better than doing a little baking. Or a lot of baking. Or just turning the oven on to keep your kitchen warm. Whatever floats your boat. I opted for the lot of baking option, and came up with these little guys.

There are some great tutorials out there for making these little snowflake royal icing toppers. I’ll warn you, they are no easy task and might not be the best challenge for someone new to royal icing, but who am I to say?

These particular cupcakes are raspberry with white chocolate icing. I also made the cupcake toppers out of some random scrapbook paper I had lying around along with a round punch and some toothpicks.

As I said, the snowflakes are extremely delicate and tricky, so some of them broke on me. Any by some, I mean most. So… I improvised and made some of the above cupcakes with little flourishes I had made, and even some of the broken snowflake pieces!

At the end of the day, I had a lot of fun with these guys even with the snowflake trouble.

Happy Baking!
