I've been wanting to make cupcake wands for awhile (they look suspiciously like my corn dog cupcakes). This seems like a good chance. I'm going to mix up my next wand attempt with some friends of the cupcake (like fruit). In the meantime: Sprinkles in the batter, sprinkles on top, I think it covers the 'festive' atmosphere New Year's Eve brings with it. One suggestion-putt some melted chocolate on the stick to hold the cupcakes in place as you slide them on.
