Edible Snowflakes



Happy December everyone!!  I'm so excited to start the month off with a great post.  I've been anxiously waiting to be able to share these beauties with you.  

Today I'm sharing a fun tutorial for Edible Snowflakes.  These fun creations will be a great embellishment for your holiday cupcakes and cookies.  You have to make these!!

Supplies needed:
vanilla almond bark (or white chocolate)
piping bag and tip
waxed paper
Wilton white pearl dust
Wilson sugar pearls
Melt white chocolate or vanilla almond bark and put into piping bag with small tip.  I prefer almond bark because it sets up quicker.  Draw or print a snowflake design onto paper and put under wax paper for template.  Pipe design slowly onto wax paper.

Complete snowflake and slide design under wax paper to begin the next flake.  Let dry completely.
Brush with Wilton white pearl dust, found at most hobby stores in the cake decorating section.
Pipe a small amount of chocolate or almond bark into center of flake.  Top with a blue (or color of your choice) Wilton sugar pearl.
The finished product!!
Carefully peel snowflakes off of wax paper and place on cupcakes or cookies.
I even made some different sizes along with my daughter's name for her birthday cake.  She loved it and I hope you do too!!
