Snowflake Frozen Cupcakes
I think that Frozen is arguably one of the best Disney movies that has ever been created. And if it’s possible, Frozen II was even better! If you and your child agree, you have to make these Frozen Cupcakes!
There are all kinds of Frozen Cupcake ideas that one could come up with, but I think the simpler the theme, the better. “The Snow Queen” story and Frozen both center around the idea of snow, cold, winter and frozen things, so why not represent Frozen with creamy blue and white cupcakes and a snowflake!
These Frozen themed cupcakes are the perfect dessert for a Disney gathering or Frozen themed party. Everyone will be telling you how cool they are! (See what I did there?) Have a fun filled afternoon while making these delicious Frozen cupcakes!
Frozen Cupcakes Recipe
How To Make:
Cupcakes and Frosting
1 box white cake mix (likely includes eggs/oil/water, so check the requirements)
2 containers of white frosting
2 egg whites
1/4 tsp cream of tartar
3 cups powdered sugar
blue food coloring
*NOTE – The snowflakes take at least 5 hours to set. You may want to skip down and make those first before baking your cupcakes. Do what works best for you.*
Step 1: Preheat your oven to the temperature on your white cake box instructions. Mix and bake according to the 24 cupcakes directions.
Step 2: Check your cupcakes with a toothpick to make sure they are done and allow to cool on racks for 15 to 20 minutes.
Step 1: For the frosting, place one entire tub in a bowl. Using your blue food coloring, add two drops to the bowl and mix thoroughly. Depending on the brand that you use, you may want to add a bit more to get the right color.
Step 2: Once you have the correct color blue, scoop your blue frosting into one side of a pastry bag and the white frosting from the other tub into the other side.
Do a quick test of the frosting to make sure that it is coming out of the tip with both colors. You may need to expel a bit before they squeeze out together.
Step 3: Once ready and with your choice of frosting tip, frost your cupcakes with a good amount of icing.

Step 1: Now, let’s make the Royal Icing snowflakes. Take out your stand mixer and add your powdered sugar and cream of tartar to the bowl. Mix gently to combine.
Step 2: In a separate bowl, beat your two egg whites and then add them to the sugar combination. Beat the entire mixture for about 5 minutes or until you see a thick consistency.
Step 3: Take your icing and place it in a pastry bag. Seal off the end and choose a #2C/Large Star tip. If you have any extra icing in the mixer bowl, cover it with plastic wrap so that it doesn’t dry out.

Step 4: Take a piece of waxed paper and tape it down to a countertop or cookie sheet. Using my image as an example, draw the snowflake onto the waxed paper.
If you want something to trace, you can print out my image or choose from a variety of snowflake images. Place your image under the waxed paper to make tracing easier.
Step 5: Allow the snowflakes to dry for at least 5 hours. After 5 hours (or more), test the snowflakes by pushing gently on them. If there is any give, they are not dry enough.
Step 6: Once the snowflakes are dry, very gently peel them off the waxed paper. Make a tiny slice in the top of the frosting of each cupcake and insert your snowflake in the middle. Do this for each cupcake and you are done!
When Should I Frost The Cupcakes After Baking?
This all depends on your needs. Ideally, you’ll want to bake your cupcakes and allow them to cool completely. Once they are room temperature, frost your cupcakes and let them sit out.
For the snowflakes to sit in the frosting well, you may want the frosting to have hardened just a bit rather than having it still be the natural, gooey texture.
Can You Freeze Frozen Cupcakes?
Yes! If you bake and frost these cupcakes, you can freeze them. Place the frosted cupcakes in an airtight container, flat on the bottom so that the cupcakes don’t smush each other and leave them frozen up to 3 months.
The royal icing snowflakes are best if made fresh, but you should be able to create them, allow them to dry completely and then freeze them. If you place each dried snowflake in its own Ziploc bag and then place them (in a stack of bags) into another airtight container in the freezer, they should be fine for a few months.
