With Christmas only a day away, you can well imagine how busy I have been trying to meet the demands of my different clients. Orders for making creative, fun and unique cakes have been coming in like crazy and since I was in search of interesting holiday confectionery ideas, I landed up with some really cute and exciting cupcakes this time. And what I think is that the cakes that I've made are just perfect for celebrating the birthday of Jesus Christ. Have a look at some simple and unique cupcakes that I prepared this time for my clients. You can also prepare them at your home if you want.
These rather cute confections are quite easy to make if you have a few toppings ready (or you can go to the market and get them). You can make the hat using red sprinkles, the infamous snow white beard of Santa Claus with shredded coconut or marshmallows, the eyes with chocolate chips and the nose with a small jelly candy.
To make this, you need to pipe a chocolate cupcake with some white frosting and add a chocolate scarf to it. You need to make the head by adding a chocolate cookie at the centre of the scarf and use buttercream frosting for coating the cookie. The eyes can be made with two drops of chocolate and the nose with a citrus peel. For giving the hat a frosty look, sprinkling some powdered sugar on top is a must.
X-Mas Tree Cupcake
For creating these cute Christmas confections, you will need some good quality green frosting. In order to keep the amount of the frosting to minimum, you can use sugar cones adorned with these frostings. Make sure to sprinkle edible silver ornaments and powdered sugar for giving the cupcake a snowy effect. If you have kids at your home, ask them to decorate the trees for you by adding small candies, M&M's etc. After all, they would really love doing this.
Candy Cane Cupcake
Imagine how yummy a rich, chocolate cupcake with peppermint extract and chocolate chips would taste. This one can really be tasty. Just sprinkle crushed peppermint candy bark or candy cane on top of white frosting to get an extraordinary look and feel. You can even bake the confections with a candy cane kiss in their centre. It would be a sweet surprise for those who are going to eat the tasty treats.
