There are so many cute things to put on top using candy, toothpick toppers, sprinkles, designing an animal face with candy, and making stripes and polka dot designs with candy and edible things.
Here are a few that I loved.
|Cute Cupcake Toppers from Current Catalog|
This cute Christmas set of toppers is from Currentcatalog.com, a stationery store online. It is only 99cents! My classroom Christmas party will be more fun with the kids being able to choose their own cute toppers for the cupcakes they decorate. And look how easy! The link for these cute toppers is HERE at Current.
|Free Cupcake Topper Printables|
Another cute topper with some FREE PRINTABLES I found at Bake it Pretty blog HERE. She occasionally has a free printable for all kinds of holiday stuff. All you need here is a color printer to make some really cute cupcakes!
|Cute Reindeer Cupcakes for Christmas Day!|
The Amateur Gourmet has a tutorial on making these cute reindeer cupcakes with curly pretzels and M &Ms. I think kids could totally do these and have a great time at a winter party. All you need is chocolate cupcakes and frosting and vanilla wafers and some little candies. The rest is so easy! Katy's tutorial is HERE at Amateur Gourmet.
Tips for Melting Candy Wafers for Decorating Cupcakes......
1.Use a double boiler.
2. Use low heat.
3. Don't boil it too fast or it turns to a ball.
4. Stir pretty regularly.
5. If you use a piping bag, let the melted candy cool for 10 minutes so it doesn't burn your hands as you pipe
6. Once molds are filled put them in the fridge to harden, or between color layers.
Have fun making Christmas cupcakes..... Here's my latest yummy obsession...Gingerbread men and Gingerbread Cake!
