Winter Wonderland Mint Chip Cupcakes

I wish I had a picture but I have no doubt that all you imaginative types will see what I am doing here. I came up with the recipe for a Winter Wonderland type theme dance for my daughter's Jr High. She came back home & said everyone adored them. They really come together if you use foil or snowflake wrappers, the Wilton Color Mist in blue, crystal clear flake glitter & edible silver "paper stars" glitter. All of this is easily available in the baking department at craft stores like Michael's. You can easily make your own batter & frosting instead.
