These fabulous Christmas cupcake decorating ideas are not our own, but enjoy and hope you made the best cupcakes for your guests to try!

Jolly Santa Claus Cupcake

White and red icing
Mini marshmallow
Shredded coconut
Blue and pink gel icing
Red candy
1. Frost the cupcake with a layer of white icing. Add the red frosting hat, curving it around the side of Santa’s face, and a marshmallow pom-pom.
2. Sprinkle on a ring of coconut to make Santa’s beard and hair. Draw on his eyes and cheeks with gel icing, then top it all off with a red candy nose
Edible Ornaments Cupcake
Colorful frosting
Red and green candy such as M&Ms
Mini Reeses Peanut Butter Cups
1. To make them, frost a batch of cooled cupcakes (baked from your favorite recipe) with colorful frosting.
2. Decorate with festive icing and candies (we used red and green M&Ms Minis), then top each one with a miniature Reeses Peanut Butter Cup and a pretzel piece for an ornament hanger. Don’t forget to save one for Santa.
Mistletoe Cupcakes
Cooled cupcakes (baked from your favorite recipe)
White icing
Grated coconut
Green gumdrops
Sugar, for sprinkling gumdrop leaves
Red candy for holly berries (M&Ms work well)
1. Frost the cupcakes with snowy white icing and top with grated coconut.
2. Then use a rolling pin to flatten green gumdrops on a piece of waxed paper sprinkled with sugar. Use an aspic cutter or butter knife to cut out holly leaf shapes.
3. Arrange two or three leaves and a few red candy “berries” on top of each cupcake, pressing them into the frosting just enough to hold them in place.

That’s all for now folks! I am off to make my own Christmas cupcakes! Enjoy! Part 2 of Christmas Holiday Cupcake frenzy will be up very soon!
