snow globe cupcakes

i love snow globes
when i see grand collections
a tinge of envy
bubbles up
like plastic snowflakes
in a whirl
settling calm
the last thing i need
 another collection

unless of course
we are talking
like these little darlings

an incredibly simple project
perfect for
your holiday table
snow globe cupcakes
1 recipe of your favorite cupcake baked and cooled
1 recipe of your favorite frosting
1 dozen plastic clear christmas balls
like these
i picked mine up at michaels 
cupcake toppers 
(deer, trees, house in the woods...
whatever your fancy)

using a sharp scissor or craft knife, cut the top off the ornament
like so
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
