Spend a snowy day making FROZEN Cupcakes!
You know, those days where you can't justify making 24 cupcakes
because you know you'll eat them all!
Okay, so just 4.
4 TBSP butter softened
4 TBSP sugar
2 tsp Vanilla
3 TBSP milk
1/2 cup Flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
2 pinches of salt
Should use all your batter!
Now, while they are baking and cooling...
make your frozen icicle shard candy!
(be careful, those icicles have been know to kill people)
Okay, in a saucepan...
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons of corn syrup
2 tablespoons of water
boil on high until it reaches 300* F or hard crack.
and 1/8 teaspoon of flavoring (optional)
I poured a large amount first, then little strings and strands
of syrup to make the lacy frozen icicles.
Really though, be careful...hard candy can cut like glass.
out of damask acetate paper.
and topped with hard candy icicles and shards!
My 5 year old was fine, but fyi.
Enjoy the snowy frozen weather!
