Snowflake Cupcakes

This is my favorite new idea for extravagant cupcakes. I made these cupcakes for a first birthday party with a winter theme. Each cupcake is topped with homemade buttercream frosting, sparkle sugar, and sugar cookie, which I baked from scratch and decorated with a thin layer of sparkly blue royal icing and piped white frosting details. My sugar-addict husband, who is "never satisfied" by a measly little cupcake, really loved this idea where he could top his cupcake off with a cookie chaser. They were so elegant and quite delicious, if I do say so myself. I thought it was a cool way to dress up a cupcake. (Prices start at $4.50 per cookie cupcake)
