Sparkly Cupcakes Tutorial Part 1

ImageI’ve had a lot of interest in these cupcakes lately thanks to pinterest.  I know that many moons ago I told you that I would post a tutorial on how to make them and um…after way too long…here it is.  I am embarrassed to say that these photos have been on my computer for three years now.  I’m going to break this into two parts.  The sugar and the frosting.

 

So today we’re going to make the sparkle!  Ok so it’s just sugar, but it’s pretty.

 

Here’s what you need:
