Frozen Icicle Candy Cupcakes!

Spend a snowy day making FROZEN Cupcakes!
 Perfect for a Frozen Princess Party!
 With Blue Crystal Icicle Shards for added frostiness!

 Here's a great recipe for Cupcakes for four!
You know, those days where you can't justify making 24 cupcakes
because you know you'll eat them all!
Okay, so just 4.

1 Egg
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
 Mix the wet, add and mix the dry.
 Get out 4 cupcake papers.
 Fill them 2/3's full.
Should use all your batter!
 Bake 350* F for 15 minutes.

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.
 Then add 1 drop of blue food coloring
and 1/8 teaspoon of flavoring (optional)
 Pour it out on a silicone mat.
I poured a large amount first, then little strings and strands
of syrup to make the lacy frozen icicles.
 It will lift right up off the mat when cooled.
 The larger piece can be broken carefully to make crystals.
Really though, be careful...hard candy can cut like glass.
 I used my Silhouette machine to cut out scallop cupcake wrappers
out of damask acetate paper.
 Now just added a generous swirl of buttercream frosting
and topped with hard candy icicles and shards!
Remove the shards and icicles before giving to small children.
My 5 year old was fine, but fyi.
Enjoy the snowy frozen weather!

They look really beautiful, and I think I'll make some for my family, especially for my little dauhter!

Aaaand if you modify them a bit, you have really good Breaking Bad themed cupcakes ;-) (Which was my first thought when I saw the blue candy ;-) )

Hi Natalie, I can not find the damask acetate paper. Can you please give me some ideas where can I get it. Thank you

Hi! I followed your recipe but mine was burnt as soon as it reaches 300F. I'm not sure what I did wrong. When it reaches 250F it all started to caramelized. Is it possible that the amount of recipe is too little? Should I turn off the heat before it starts to caramelize? Help please. Thanks!
