Ilove snow globes. When i see grand collections, a tinge of envy bubbles up; like plastic snowflakes in a whirl. It then turns to a settling calm, because, the last thing i need is another collection. Unless of course we are talking
edible. Like these little darlings. This is an incredibly simple project perfect for your holiday table.

Wash and dry the “globe” then sprinkle some of the edible glitter in the bottom.  swirl it around.  Most of the glitter will stick, what doesn’t will fall to the cupcake when you invert.  If you want lots of “snow” in the globe, brush a bit of vodka on the inside of the globe, swirl the glitter.  It will stick well, and the vodka will evaporate, eliminating any unwanted moisture. Frost the cupcake as you normally would, place your decorations on top, and carefully invert the globe over the top. Finish with a little bow
