Xmas cupcakes

It’s a bit early I know but I am having a Xmas decorating workshop this weekend and thought I’d practice some techniques and ideas!

Santa, Elf and gift made out of fondant and my trusty double sided cookie cutter: one side is scalloped the other is normal.

Santa cupcake TIP: use a dented knife to shape the beard.

Gift cupcake TIP: if you don’t have texture sheets you can easily use a toothpick to create polka dot or stripe texture patterns.

The wreath and the Xmas tree are just piped icing using a star tip (I used an Ateco 21) and the snowman was done with fondant

Xmas tree cupcake: I bought the little peppermint canes from Wilton, so cute and peppermint-y!! Xmas tree cupcakes by Cupcaketeer

Xmas wreath cupcake: Holly & Berries from Wilton, then I used a yellow gel for the ribbon… next time I might use white better!

Snowman cupcake: love this little guy! He looks happy! Don’t use a bunch of fondant roll for the hat, just use a mini marshmallow. Same for the body and head… tastes better!
