Frosted Dreams…..Winter Cupcakes

 

Frosted Dreams………

I’ve had  fantasies of skating in a beautiful out door rink, background music plays, snow gently falls and I feel the icy cold wind blowing on my face while I hear the criss cross sound of blades hitting ice.  We finish chilled to the bone, stop for hot cocoa by a fire and sitting there are the most gorgeous cupcakes!

That’s right……cupcakes!  Ever since Kristan shared her incredibly cute snowman cupcakes I haven’t been able to get them off my mind.

Here in St. Louis, we’ve had lots of cold and very little snow.  So I thought if I was making snowman cupcakes, why not a few snowballs too!

Head over to Confessions of a Cookbook Queen to read Kristan’s fabulous instructions on how to make these snowman cupcakes.

Just don’t laugh when you see how much cuter hers are than mine! {wink}

My family, namely my husband, LOVED the snowman hats SO much, he’s requested that I make an extra batch of just hats next time! lol………..I never even got to eat one, so I wouldn’t know how good they were, but let’s just say, oreos and marshmallows covered in chocolate……..I think I understand!

I'm linking up with these parties.......please visit them!

Do you dream about cupcakes?

Are you making any winter fun treats?
