  • Whip up my easy and delicious but bake it into cupcakes.
  • Let cupcakes cool completely before frosting.
  • Mix up two batches of my easy vanilla buttercream. You can add in 1 teaspoon of peppermint extract for a peppermint flavor if you want.
  • Using an ice cream scoop, scoop out some frosting and then place the whole scooped amount on top of your cupcake.
  • Dust with powdered sugar.


Tips and Tricks
  • You can make any cupcakes but I prefer white ones to keep with the snowball theme
  • Use a 2 inch cookie scoop with release lever for optimal snowball
