Ingredients for Wizard Cupcakes
1 baked ice cream cone cupcake (see directions,below)
Colored icing (for hair and details)
Assorted lollies for decorations
Pointed ice cream cones (for hats)
Flat bottom ice cream cones (for baking)
Candy stars (for Hats)
Edible glitter or coarse colored sugar
Mini pretzel sticks (for wand)
To bake ice-cream-cone cupcakes, use your favorite box mix (not the “add butter” kind). Place flat-bottomed ice cream cones in a cupcake tray and fill three-quarters full. Bake as directed. These cupcakes are best made the same day since they get soggy after 12 hours.
Place a big scoop of icing on top of the cupcake to make the head, smoothing as much as possible. Add sugar eyes, icing hair or a red licorice smile, just use your imagination to add any details you like.
To make the wizard’s hat, use scissors to cut a sugar cone down to 2 inches. Coat with icing and decorate with candy stars, edible glitter or colored sugar.
For the magic wand, coat a mini pretzel stick with icing, sprinkle with edible glitter or colored sugar, and attach the sugar star with a dab of icing. To finish, place the hat on the head, arrange the wand nearby, and, presto, you’re done.
Tip: If you use melted white chocolate rather than icing for the hats and wands, they can be made a day or two in advance and stored in an airtight container.
