  • Allow baked cupcakes to cool completely on a wire rack before decorating.
  • Using a mixer, start beating butter and slowly add confectioners sugar.

  • Using a piping bag with frosting tip, frost each cupcake.
  • Line a baking sheet with wax paper. Roll your fondant into ½ inch circles (you’ll want to make 24 of them) and then shape into rectangles, dusting your fingers with cornstarch while preparing them so they don’t stick to your hands..
  • Place each rectangle on lined baking sheet.
  • Brush each fondant piece with silver luster.
  • Insert a pretzel stick at the bottom of each one (you can break off a piece of the pretzel stick if they are too long).
