HEY, lets make christmas cupcakes!!!
because several of you have asked me how,
I decided to show you. These are so easy
you will need:
Plaster of paris
pretty cupcake liners and a cupcake pan
cute little accents to use as cupcake toppers
medium size styrofoam balls
cake decorating kit
glitters in what ever colors you like
(optional, acrylic paint if you choose to
color your frosting)
step 1: place cupcake papers in cupcake tins.
step 2: mix plaster of paris according to
directions, (usually 2 parts plaster and 1 part
water.) To make 6 cupcakes, I use 2 cups of
plaster and 1 cup of water.
Stir well and then fill cupcake liners. These
need toset for about 24 hours.
step 3: decide what your going to use for your
toppers and glue toothpicks on the the back
of them. I used my hot glue gun.
Step 4: cut three styrofoam balls in half. These
will be the tops to your cupcakes.
Step 5: have some snacks! lol!
Step 6: you will need lightweight spackle and
a cake decorating kit. If you are choosing to
color your frosting something other then white
you will want to mix some in a bowl with a few
drops of acrylic paint. I like plain white for
christmas. Load your frosting bag using the tip
(sorry I dont know what that tip is called!)
Step 7: put a glob of "frosting" on the plaster
bottom and then press one of the half styro-
foam balls on top.
Step 8: Now you can pipe your frosting onto
the top of your cupcakes.
Step 9: sprinkle with glitter and gentle push
your topper in! Then leave them to sit a few
days until you're sure they are totally hardened!
Now be prepared to warn people that they cant
eat these! because they will think they can!!
