How to Make New Years Eve Cupcakes

Frost cupcakes using a piping bag and tip, or you can just spread it on in a thick layer.

Sprinkle gold and silver sugar all over the frosting.

Pour some of the candy into each shot glass and fill almost halfway.

Place a cupcake into each glass.

Poke a gumball onto each toothpick, and poke a toothpick down into the frosting on top each cupcake. The ball can just rest on top the frosting.
