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?

    Love these! Would have been perfect for our random snow storm we just had in Dallas:-)

    We’ve actually been “snowed in” for the last two days here in Louisiana, so I made snowflake cut out cookies and decorated them with royal icing. Each cookie is different just like each snowflake is not the same. I was disappointed in how the color blue turned out ( I was hoping for more of a ‘snowy blue’, but I think I used to much paste) but other than that, I enjoyed my baking project! Stay warm!!

    Your snowballs and your snowmen cupcakes are sweet. What is it about snowmen that make you want to just hug them…even if they are edible and we pop them in our mouths without a second thought? I suppose it’s better than the other option for some….melting!
    You did a great job on both of these cupcakes Cheryl.

  10. 11

    Aren’t these the sweetest! Love these, Cheryl!

  11. 12

    I have a question about linking to different web parties…
    I see that you are linked up to some that haven’t yet occurred. Do you go to the site on the day of the link event and sign up then? Do you write yourself a little reminder? Thanks so much.
