Christmas Cupcakes Ingredients
To make these fun decorated cupcakes, you’ll need these easy ingredients:

- edible white glitter
- 6 gumdrops, white or red
- 1 piece of white paper
- black marker
Yields: 6 Santa cupcakes
How to make Santa Cupcakes
To get started, fill a piping bag with frosting and add a flower or star tip. Pipe the frosting onto each cupcake to resemble the appearance of snow. Alternatively, you can spread a thick layer with a knife and carefully pull up peaks. Sprinkle the edible glitter all over the frosting.
Next, cut each red and white candy stick in half and then stick one into each of the cupcakes. Then, cut a slice off the bottom of the gumdrops to create a sticky bottom and stick the gumdrops to the top of the candy sticks. Add the Santas by cutting off half of the lollipop sticks and and then place them into the cupcakes.
Cut small pieces of white paper and write “North Pole” with a black marker on each one. Stick them on each candy pole, using a dab of frosting as “glue” to keep them together.
Serve and enjoy!
