Bakers and cake enthusiasts will love these snow cone-inspired cupcakes by baking blog Decorated to look just like real slushy snow cones, these cupcakes are the perfect hot day party treat.

While snow cones are prone to melting on a hot day, these snow cone cupcakes will taste good in any weather. This cupcake decorating recipe teaches bakers how to expertly trick their party guests into thinking that they’re about to bite into a cool, slushy treat. The trick in fooling your guests is in the sprinkles you use. To accurately replicate the snow effect of snow cones, use the sprinkle crystals that reflect the light and look like ice. After you bake your cupcakes, ice the cupcakes, pick three sprinkle colors and layer the crystal sprinkles in three stripes. Put the cupcake in a paper cup, add a plastic spoon and watch as guest think they’re about to bite into a snowy treat.
