I am planning on making these cupcakes with all the little kids in the family on Christmas Eve! 😀
No need for fondant or fancy cutters.
These cupcakes are DECORATED with just frosting and sprinkles.
By the way, if you can’t find a the jumbo star sprinkle, just cut out a small star shaped fondant piece and spray it with edible gold or silver spray paint.
To make these easy Christmas tree cupcakes, you will need the following ingredients:
Green buttercream icing
Yellow buttercream icing
Jumbo star sprinkles (or you can use a small star shaped fondant cut-out!)
Tip # 1M
And here are the steps:
Prepare your cupcakes and frostings.
Fill a piping bag with yellow frosting and attach Tip #104.
Hold the bag at a 45 degree angle along the edge of your cupcake and squeeze the bag, while moving your hand up and down until you have a row of yellow ruffles.
Fill a piping bag with green frosting and attach Tip # 1M.
Hold the bag at a 90 degree angle in the center of the cupcake and make a tall swirl.
Toss some sprinkles on top of your cupcake and place a jumbo star sprinkle on the top.
And you are done!
Well, that’s all for today.
