Christmas Cupcakes

Posted on 22 December 2009 by Mădălina

We’re inching closer to that date, and I hope you’ve done your Christmas shopping… or at least asked Santa to do it for you. If you haven’t, these amazingly cute cupcakes might just be enough to put a smile on someones face.

I got an e-mail a few weeks ago from an anonymous reader and they attached a picture of some cupcake toppers. I thought I would re-create them with a few shortcuts. If you are said anonymous reader please e-mail me back so I can credit you:)

Happy Holidays everyone. What are your plans for Christmas this year?


~ 1/2 lb Fondant
- Icing Colours (to dye fondant)
- Round Cookie Cutter
- Ginger Bread Cookie Cutter
Black Edible Writing Pen
- Cupcakes with Icing
- Imagination:)

Start by colouring your fondant in different shades. I used a peachy-beige (quite the techinical term for skin tone hah) for the elf and Santa, and a darker brown for the gingerbread man.
Go nuts. Use the fondant to add a hat, nose, eyes, excetera. The edible pen was used to add the finer detail.

Allow them to dry for a few hours, this just makes it easier to top your cupcakes:)

Finito! I think the elf is my favourite… he looks sneaky.
