Easy Snowflake Cupcakes

Welcome to Cupcake Tuesday! I’m so glad to have you! I have updated the Cupcake Heaven page, there are over 150 designs and recipes!

We continue our very strange Winter, with not much snow and warmer than usual temperatures, not that I’m complaining at all! I hear snow is coming our way though in a couple days. To get you in the spirit and remind us all that it is really Winter, these Easy Snowflake Cupcakes are perfect!

Did you know that cutting paper snowflakes by hand is not as easy as it looks? I started out to make enough of these little beauties for my Dining Room window, and after a few hours, and a hand that I don’t think will ever feel the same, I only had a handful and hate to say…gave up. Stay tuned for a much easier way to make snowflakes, coming on Friday!

Enough about the paper snowflake making…let’s create a much easier version…Snowflake Cupcakes
