Use an offset spatula to frost each cupcake with the buttercream frosting using all of it. 

 

Sparkling sugar cupcakes

 

Hold each cupcake over a bowl or plate to catch the excess and sprinkle on some of the Sparkling Sugar.   Or if you are using plain white sugar, you could simply dip each cupcake upside down in a bowl containing the sugar.  

 

Making the Snowman Face Cupcakes with black and orange icing

 

Attach a Wilton icing tip #5 to each frosting tube.    Decorate each cupcake with a “snowman face” by making dots with the black icing for eyes and the mouth.   And then use the orange icing for the carrot nose.

Finish the remaining Snowmen Cupcakes.  And allow to set up and then serve!
