Snowy Popcorn Cupcakes are the perfect birthday party treat for a winter birthday! Let the kids decorate their own cupcake  and enjoy the extra popcorn and candies as an added bonus.  Serve cupcakes with some icy cold milk or soy milk in fancy punch cups. Before filling , dip the rim of each cup into a bit of milk to dampen. Dip the dampened rim into a colorful sugar and serve the milk with a festive sweet-sipping garnish.  For more kids cupcake recipes check out my new autographed ( and not yet released!)  Pink Princess Cupcakes Cookbook at  http://kidscookingshop.com/new-pink-princess-cupcakes-cookbook  at a special valued price through the end of January.

2. Put one-fourth of the canned frosting in a separate bowl and add enough pink paste food coloring to make it bright pink. Add the lime green paste food coloring to the remaining frosting. Set aside until ready to use.

3.  Following the directions on the Candy Melts, make 24 candy frogs using the candy mold. Always be careful when working with hot liquids and make sure you have the help of your adult helper.

4. When you are ready to assemble the cupcakes, frost the top of each cupcake green to resemble a lily pad and then set a candy frog in the center. Use black gel to make the frog’s pupils and pink gel to make his mouth.

5. Place bright pink frosting inside a small zipper close plastic bag and securely seal shut. With a scissors cut off a tiny tip from one corner. Squeeze out frosting and pipe pink around the edge of each cupcake and place one little frosting decoration next to the frog or use a star-shaped candy décor.
