North Pole Cupcakes

17 Nov

Yep, you read that right – North Pole Cupcakes. You don’t even need to be at the North Pole to make them! I made these last Christmas and they were a total hit! And while they look like they may be a little involved, they really are very simple!

Bake up your favorite cupcake recipe – whatever type you like. For mine I made a devils food – from a box mix of course – and then I whipped up some vanilla buttercream – you can use any icing you like that falls into the white icing family. Decorate the cupcakes with the icing, roughly to resemble ‘snow’, and sprinkle with large white sugar crystals to make the ‘snow’ glisten.

Break the hook off of enough candy canes – one for each cupcake – and push into the center of the cupcake, broken end down.

Pick out some red sixlets – again, enough for all of your cupcakes. Make up a glue out of meringue powder and water and place a red sixlet on the top of the candy canes with a little spot of the meringue glue. Let the meringue dry, and tape a little North Pole sign on the front and serve!

What you will need:

cupcakes – use a box mix and follow directions

1 icing recipe – in the white icing family

white decorator sugar crystals

enough candy canes to have one per cupcake

red sixlets for the tops of the poles

meringue powder + water for the ‘glue’

a small North Pole sign for each candy cane pole

people to share them with
