My cousin asked that I make cupcakes for her sister's surprise bridal shower. Then she asked that I make them "Icey" or "Bling Bling". Now her sister is very prissy and loves all things diamonds and designer brands, so I'm guessing that she wants the cupcakes to "shine" for lack of a better word or look like it has diamonds on them. Does anyone have any ideas on how to accomplish this? She wants white frosting and the colors for the shower are white and silver so I bought silver dragees and silver cupcake cups, but what else could I do/ add???? Oh and the cupcakes will be frosted in white buttercream only.



Thanks for any suggestions and if you have pictures of your ideas, that would really help.
