These snowflake cupcakes are so perfect for a Winter Wonderland Wedding. I will admit that after reading the recipe, I realized that these may not be the easiest cupcakes to make since you'll have to make the snowflakes as well. However, I am sure you can do it with a little practice you will be able to feature these cute cupcakes at your wedding.
If you are interested in making them you can go here to Glorious Treats to learn how for Winter Wedding or bridal shower.

I've featured Cupcake Bouquets before but I've never posted instructions for you to make them for yourself but today is your lucky day!
What you'll need:
- cupcakes, frosting,
- disposable piping bag
- reusable piping bag
- Wilton 1M tip (or a similar open star tip)
- green tissue paper
- clear tape
- flower pot
- styrofoam ball
The instructions are from 52 Kitchen Adventures and the cupcake bouquet below is what, Stephanie, the baker made.
1. Bake cupcakes and make buttercream frosting. To pipe a cupcake rose, fit a piping bag with a 1M tip and fill with room temperature frosting. To pipe a rose, hold the piping bag perpendicular to the surface and start in the center of the cupcake. Gently squeeze the bag and pipe frosting around in a spiral until you reach the outer edge, then let go.
2. Place cupcakes in fridge while you prepare the styrofoam so the frosting becomes firm.
3. Place styrofoam ball into flower pot. Place two toothpicks in each area where you want a cupcake. Note: around the sides, insert toothpicks at 45° angle, otherwise cupcakes will fall off after a while.
4. Slide a cupcake onto each pair of toothpicks, adjusting toothpicks as needed to place cupcakes close together. Cover as much of the styrofoam as you can. (My styrofoam ball had a 5″ diameter and fit 10 cupcakes.)
5. Cut green tissue paper into small strips. Fold strips into accordions. Pinch the bottom of the accordion fold.
6. Place a piece of clear tape at the pinched part of the tissue paper and stick it to the exposed styrofoam in between the cupcakes. Make more tissue paper “leaves” until you cover all the uncovered areas.
7. You’re done!

These beautiful, turquoise cake stands are featured here at Bee In A Bonnet! They are made with small pieces of plywood, trims from Michael's and table legs that were found at Home Depot! It's not a project for every do-it-yourself bride but it's certainly one that yields gorgeous stands!
Again, you can find the tutorial for making these stands here at Bee In A Bonnet!
