Cupcakes for New Year’s Eve

The year is almost over and a new year ready to begin … time to party!

Cupcakes for New Year's Eve

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?

  1. 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
