Tips for Making a Frappe Christmas Ornament

What is in the cup?

  • It is spackle, yep what we use to fill in holes in our walls so whoever came up with this idea- GENIUS! It does dry fast so you need to follow the below instructions carefully.

How do you create the whipped cream effect?

  • A cupcake decorator set will do the trick. You can find them at your local Dollar Store but if they don’t have them then look at Target or Walmart. The best part about doing this is that you can pipe the spackle onto the top like icing on a cupcake! Oh yeah, remember to leave a bit of room on top of the cup before putting the “whip cream” on top.
