The year is almost over and a new year ready to begin … time to party!
Are you hosting a party or going to a party?
These cupcakes are sure to fit in at an adult party or one that includes children.
Make your favorite cupcakes … make ice cream cone hats … throw in some candy noise makers … you have got cupcakes for a sweet New Year’s Eve party!
This is what you will need …
- Frosted cupcakes
- Sugar ice cream cones
- Melted white chocolate (candy melts)
- Edible confetti
- Air Heads Extremes
- Sugar coated sour tape type candy
- Fruit slice jelly candies
- Blue sugar
- Granulated sugar (not in photo)
Make the noise makers/blowers … use a paring knife to cut the Extreme strips in half, then cut strips to create “fringe” at the end of each piece. Shape the fruit slice candy to look like a mouthpiece. As the candy gets gummy, dip it in the granulated sugar. Use a knife to make a cut and insert candy tape.
Hint – I could not get the Extreme strips to stay rolled up (so they cut into strips) but the red sour tape candy rolled up fine.
Make the party hats … place the melted white chocolate in a tall container, dip cone and shake off excess chocolate …
Add some edible confetti and set on wax paper …
When chocolate has hardened, dip the edge of the cone in chocolate, then in colored sugar …
Warning – this tassel takes patience!
Make a tassel for the hat … cut one strip of Extreme candy into 4 pieces, then cut to create fringe …
This is where patience is needed … attach the tassel to the tip of the cone with a few dots of melted chocolate and hold it in place … maybe hold it some more … then pray … and smoosh it in place!
I think the tassel is quite cute, but I did call it names while I was trying to make it stick 😉
So … are you ready for a party?
I look forward to your comments!
Unless you don’t eat your creations, Brenda, you must weigh about a thousand pounds. I wouldn’t be able to resist. Happy, happy New Year!
As a matter of fact … right now I feel like I weigh a thousand pounds! Guess what my resolution involves 😉
I’m not laughing. (ha, ha, ha, ha, ha) Really, I’m not.
Sweet and beautiful cupcake creations
You are so sweet 🙂
How cute…my grandson will love this… 😉
Thanks … they are great for kids!
These look like fun to make not only for New Years but great for a kid party. Jessica and I might try these.
Maybe a birthday party!
So incredible, Brenda. And I join here Kathleen Richardson regarding the 1000 pounds. That’s how I feel too right now with all the special meals cooked by Chefs here in Bangkok. I can not be “rude” and just have a fork full, or? How can I sample and write about this later? Lolol Happy Happy New Year. Ciao Carina
Of course you can’t be rude 😉
So cute! Wishing you a happy and safe 2013! Once I am back to 10 fingers would love to give this a try. 14 more days of keeping my would dry…Take Care, BAM
It is so hard to keep the hands dry.
You are so creative!! I am so ready for these! Happy New Year 🙂
