Christmas Cupcakes

With a few Christmas parties/dinners on the horizon, I find that I am searching for unique ideas for decorating cupcakes.  I came across a few new ideas that could work for both kids parties and adult holiday celebrations.

Candy can be used as an accessory to decorate cupcakes.  I love the wreath made of jelly bean topped cupcakes, it makes for a delicious and festive presentation.  You can also use gummy trees and red hots to form a bough of holly.  These snowman cupcakes are TOO cute.  The use of licorice for earmuffs is darling, and so simple!  I typically leave the fondant toppers to my contributor, Charynn of Two Sugar Babies, but if you are looking to expirement, I think these 4 ideas are simple to execute and make a big style impact!

For the adult crowd, I what to try infusing peppermint into my cupcakes this season.  This peppermint mocha cupcake has my name written all over it and I can’t wait to try it out!  And last, but certainly not least, cover an upside-down ice cream cone with green frosting to look like a tree!
