*You can use any frosting you like, but it should be stiff enough to hold its shape when piped. (Add confectioner’s sugar to pretty much any frosting to make it stiffer.) Find the cutter and supplies at the craft store. I used the Wilton mini baking cups because the cookies fit so nicely in them and the sides stood up well. Click HERE for tips on finding supplies.
step two: frost your cookies
Prepare any frosting of your choice and tint white. Fill a decorating bag fitted with a coupler and a star tip and tie closed with a rubber band. Pipe a dollop of frosting on a cookie and top with another cookie. Then pipe frosting on top of the stack. Start in the center, move out to the edge and pipe round and round, smaller and smaller, until you come to a point at the top. Sprinkle with sprinkles and add a red dragee if desired.
step three: make your cupcookies
Plop the stack in a mini baking cup and you’re done.
