Christmas Santa Hat Cupcakes
Seeing as it's almost Christmas I thought I would open my blog with these super cute Santa Hat Cupcakes. I saw a photo of these last week and just had to try them!
I used Red Velvet Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Icing because of their gorgeous deep red colour - makes them extra 'Christmassy' - but any flavour cupcake could be used.
After I baked them and let them cool down I placed a strawberry (I cut off the tops/leaves off the strawberries first) in the centre of each cupcake, tip facing up, and then piped the icing around the base of the strawberry and on the tip to make it look like a Santa hat.
They took no time at all and look so great! (even with my dodgy piping skills!)
