Holiday Cupcake Ideas, Starlight Mint Cupcakes!

Starlight Mints have always been a favorite in the candy bowl now they'll be a favorite on your cupcake tray, too. This is a terrific idea for the holidays, or for entertaining any time of year. Think how great they will look on your New Years party table. The swirl top is created from red and white frosting piped from a Ziploc bag. It gets a coating of decorating sugar to give it sparkle.  We have used a Candy Glass technique to create the cellophane twist ties. They are made from clear hard candy mints that we crushed, melted, and cut into the twist shapes. Check out the latest edition of Hello, Cupcake's What's Newsletter for the entire recipe and techinique instructions for the Candy Glass.

Merry Cupcakes,
Alan and Karen

      Those darn web links are almost as hard to handle as fondant! Let's try again! You should be able to find the recipe for the Starlight Mints on our home page of the Duncan Hines web site. Here you go, and Happy Holidays!

We would love to hear from you. But we have to ask you to please copy the annoying mixed up text so we can be sure you are a person. Unfortunately that's the only way we have to weed out all the crazy robot SPAM. I hope robots don't learn to copy wavy text anytime soon!
