Peppermint reindeer cupcake

Peppermint reindeer cupcake

There’s no shame in using premade cupcake decorations such as those sold on a cardboard sheet by Wilton or CakeMate. But you can always dress them up by lining the cupcake with sprinkles or even peppermint bits.

What You Need: 1 cupcake; white frosting; candy reindeer decoration; peppermint bits (sold in a shaker, or you can break up candy canes or Starlight Mints).

How To Make It: Frost cupcake. Place reindeer in center. Sprinkle peppermint around edges. That’s it!
