New Year’s Eve Cupcake Shooters

As promised, I have another New Year’s Eve Cupcake for you! But never fear…they are super easy. Do you remember the Candy Cane Cupcake Shooters from Christmas? These New Year’s Eve Cupcake Shooters are just like them, I just changed up the colors and flavors.

I used the same Shot Glasses that I found at Pier 1 {they call them Cordial Glasses}, mini vanilla cupcakes with festive silver and blue colors. Here is what you will need…


New Year’s Eve Cupcake Shooters

Fun and festive New Year’s Eve Cupcake Shooters from


  • Shot Glasses or other small glass
  • Any flavor Mini Cupcakes, a sheet cake or even a square cake
  • Small round cookie cutter – I used the inside of a doughnut cutter
  • Decorating Icing or your favorite frosting
  • Wilton Sky Blue Coloring or other color
  • Decorator bag fitted with a #1M Tip
  • Silver Sprinkles
  • Blue colored sugar – I mixed 2 shades of blue
  • Frilly pick – I found those at Pier 1 also {optional}
  • %


  1. Bake the cupcakes, no liners needed, let cool completely.
  2. Cut with small round cookie cutter.
  3. Color icing with Sky Blue coloring, fit a decorator bag with a #1M Tip, and fill with icing.
  4. Layer cupcake, icing, and sprinkles.
  5. Repeat layers and add a frilly pick if you like.
  6. %

The color options are endless. I think they would even make a great Baby or Bridal Shower treat, be sure to serve with a spoon though.

And in case you don’t have the shot glasses, I thought I’d share how they look in a small votive glass. Just about any little glass will do, you could even use a clear plastic glass if you are feeding a crowd. I used the whole mini cupcake in these, you will need to adjust the size of your cupcake depending on the size of the glass.

And yes, there are more New Year’s Eve Cupcakes

Happy New Year!! Is it really almost 2012? Are you as surprised and blown away by that as I am?

I had every intention of sharing the New Year’s Eve Cupcake Shooters with you today, but…well time got away from me and honestly, since I’m supposed to be on a little break this week, I decided to take my son shopping instead of creating cupcakes. Never fear though, I will share them later this week AND I have some fun New Year’s Eve Cupcakes for you today too!

These fun New Year’s Eve Cocktail Cupcakes are super easy to create and a blast to eat! Just bake the cupcake right in the cocktail glass and decorate with white or even silver. For full instructions and a video on how to bake cupcakes in a glass, head on over and check out the Cocktail Cupcakes.

I added stars made with Jolly Rancher candy to these New Year’s Eve Cupcakes. The stars are easy and look really pretty too.

No time to decorate? Add a horn to the cupcake for a festive touch. Just bake up your favorite cupcake, frost and add a horn, then your guests will have dessert and be ready to ring in the New Year!
