Here's a quick tutorial
Candy Cane Sleighs holding cupcakes w/ mittens
Cupcakes (we cheated & used box mix shhhh....)
Edible snowflakes (optional)
Mitten sugar cookies (optional)
To begin: Unwrap 2 candy canes for each sled - this will help the royal icing with better adhesion, but I am sure wrapped would be ok too... Prepare some royal icing (make sure it's very thick!)
Step 2: Put royal icing in piping bag with a pretty open tip and add a row of icing to each candy cane (thanks to my man for being the hand model heeehee). Note: I added to only one candy cane, put graham cracker on then put on the other so they didn't roll...
Step 3: Add graham cracker and let set for a few min. Make sure your cupcakes are done at this point, as well...
Step 4: After you have your cupcakes ready, put a dab of royal icing on each graham cracker to help hold it in place a bit, then add cupcake.
Step 5: Add icing and edible snowflakes (found at Michael's craft store)
Step 6-9: Add mitten cookies and a few sprinkles, pack and deliver! (if I had been feeling better, I would have hand painted the mittens, but the 4th graders did seem to care and little douglas had fun doing the sprinkles ;o)
