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.
I’m so grateful for your visit, today.
