Rock Candy Cupcakes

These were SO yummy! Butter Cream/Lemon Icing!

I made these for a shower and I thought they were too cute not to share.  I am in love with decorating with rock candy.  I wish I could have found it in orange but instead I used orange sugar.  Her colors were navy, orange, light blue and grey. 


  1. Those cupcakes looks soo good! Im your newest follower! you can follow back at: 

  2. What type of frosting did you use? I used a 7 minute frosting with egg whites to make sure the frosting "dried" and kept the rock candy in place. We frosted them at 10 pm last night, only to wake up to a runny, droopy mess, leaving the birthday girl a runny, droopy mess, too. We had to run to the bakery for a replacement. The baker said the rock candy breaks down the frosting and makes it run. Tried to save money with a home made treat, but turned out to be expensive. Had to toss the rock candy cup cakes and buy expensive bakery replacements.

  3. I just used a butter cream icing...nothing fancy. So sorry. :(


Show the love. Major love!
