Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer cupcakes

One of my favorite things to do during the holiday season is baking-- better yet, decorating. This wasn't always the case. When I worked at a bakery, the holidays meant early mornings, long hours, lines of customers, and never-ending racks of cakes and pastries to decorate. Now, I happy to satisfy my creative interests in the kitchen at my leisure. Here is one of my favorite cupcake creations that is easy, fun and adorable. Who doesn't love Rudolph?

Use your favorite chocolate cupcake recipe and decorate as follows...
Supplies Needed:
  • Chocolate Frosting
  • Vanilla Buttercream Frosting
  • Red Gum Drops
  • Red Food Coloring
  • Chocolate Chips
  • Pretzels
  • 2 Ziploc bags (or 2 piping bags
What to do:
  • Frost cupcakes with chocolate frosting.
  • Fill one Ziploc or piping bag with white buttercream frosting.
  • Add the food coloring to a separate bowl of frosting to make red frosting.
  • Fill the second frosting bag with the red frosting.
  • If using Ziploc bags, snip a small hole at the bottom corner of each bag.
  • Use the white Ziploc/piping bag to make two dots. Place chocolate chips (top down) onto the white dots.
  • Place a red gum drop in the center of each cupcake.
  • Use the red Ziploc/piping bag to make smiles.
  • Break off pieces of pretzels for the antlers.
