To make your holiday dishes sparkle just like the holiday season, watch how easy it is to add a beautiful sheen. I'm Sandra Lee and this is a great idea for you to doll up your cupcakes, cakes, or just about anything at all. All you need to do is just place a little bit of granulated sugar in the bottom of a pie pan. Now, with frozen cranberries, just pop those in here and I want you to roll them around like that. Look at how perfectly they are coated. How easy is that? And they're completely covered. Now, just pick up your cranberry carefully. Pop it right onto the cupcake and one more here. Now, if you really wanna doll this up this holiday, what I want you to do is take a little sprig of just some rosemary and then some corn syrup. Now, if you don't have corn syrup, a great trick is to use maybe some maple syrup. But I want you to make sure that you get both sides and separate these out and then I just want you to take and dust it with a little bit of sugar. That is gorgeous! And that's all you need to do to doll up a perfect holiday season. From everybody here at, we wanna wish you a happy and a healthy holiday.
