I made these cute little cupcake ornaments this weekend.




Glass or plastic Christmas balls (I used some mini glass ones with mini cupcake liners for mine)
Appropriate sized cupcake liners - foil lined ones hold their shape best
Snow-tex or other thick fake snow paste
Sparkles
Plastic Christmas berries
Hot glue gun
Plastic lunch bags (without zip lock closure)

Place a drop of hot glue into cupcake liner and set in Christmas ball on a slight angle. Fill plastic lunch bag with Snow-tex and squeeze to bottom. Cut a small hole in tip and pipe Snow-tex onto ball like icing. Sprinkle sparkles onto Snow-tex and place a Christmas berry on top. Allow Snow-tex to dry at least 24 hours then attach a ribbon or wire hanger and hang on your tree or give away as gifts!

I recently made some of these too. I love the snow-tex for frosting you used on yours! I just used paint on mine. Yours look nice and fluffy!  Cheesy

Thanks Everyone! eHinders - I was really pleased too with how the Snow-tex worked as icing. You should post some pics of yours, I would love to see them :-)
