Christmas CupCakes

I made two different types of cupcakes for Christmas.  They were both made using a Red Velvet CupCake recipe.  I decorated 6 as Rudolph Cupcakes and the other 6 using Cream Cheese icing and some glitter & snowflake decorations.

I got some nice Christmas cupcake boxes to pack them in, before I brought them to my Aunt’s house for a Christmas Eve party.

Rudoph is easy to decorate.  Just make a chocolate ganache – (melted chocolate & cream) or melted chocolate on its own would work too.  Then get some red sugarpaste and roll it into a large ball to make a big nose.  Get white & black sugarpaste to make the eyes and the mouth.  For the ears I used Pretzels.  You could also use Spaghetti or any type of stringy sweets.

For the other 6 cupcakes, I made a cream cheese buttercream icing which is very delicious, and piped that using a rose type nozzle over the top.  Then I simply sprinkled some edible glitter and whatever snowflake and sugar decorations I had.  I also put little candy canes on toothpicks in each cake, which looked good.  Both sets of cupcakes went down a treat, they looked very festive, but more importantly – they tasted good – which is just as important!  These cakes are ideal as Christmas treats and presents for family and friends.
