Santa Cupcakes

Santa Cupcakes

Make any batch of cupcakes.  I made Yummy Yellow Cake.

Make a batch of buttercream frosting.

Tint enough of the frosting flesh colored to frost all of the cupcakes.  I used a little bit of peach color and a little bit of brown.  I tinted about 1 1/2 cups of frosting.

Tint about a 3/4 cup of frosting red.  Using a knife, frost about half of the top half of a cupcake red in like a swoosh.  See how I did it below.  This is Santa’s hat.

With a star tip (#16) and white frosting in a decorating bag, line the edge of the hat with small stars.

Where the mouth would go, make an arc for the mustache.

Working in a half circle, draw down the lines of the beard.

With pearl decorating candies, using pink, place Santa’s nose.

Using blue or green place Santa’s eyes.

With jimmies decorating candies, place a red jimmie in between the mustache and the beard for his mouth.

Put a mini-marshmallow at the end of the hat.

With red sugar sprinkles, give Santa some rosy cheeks.

Insist to everyone that, yes, they’re good to eat, not just look at.  :)

It really isn’t hard to turn this into a mirror image with green instead of red and touches of brown instead of white to make little elf cupcakes. I mgiht do those next year.

Also, these go great with Rudolph cupcakes.  I make them together.
