Cupcake Ornaments

This weekend I had a bit of a sweet tooth so I made some delicious little cupcake ornaments for my Christmas tree.

I love how whimsical they look, almost Dr Suess-ish,  and they were very easy to make. All you need are the following :

Glass or plastic Christmas balls (I used some mini glass ones with mini cupcake liners for mine)
Appropriate sized cupcake liners - foil lined ones hold their shape best
Snow-tex or other thick fake snow paste
Plastic Christmas berries
Hot glue gun
Plastic lunch bags (without zip lock closure)

Place a drop of hot glue into cupcake liner and set in Christmas ball on a slight angle. Fill plastic lunch bag with Snow-tex and squeeze to bottom. Cut a small hole in tip and pipe Snow-tex onto ball like icing. Sprinkle sparkles onto Snow-tex and place a Christmas berry on top. Allow Snow-tex to dry at least 24 hours then attach a ribbon or wire hanger and hang on your tree or give away as gifts!

  1. These are so sweet - literally could eat them... if it wasn't for the glass of course!
    Am running out of time to make all the things I'd like to for Christmas. Starting a list for next year...
