Mini Santa Hat Cupcakes

The holidays can always be a crazy time with school Christmas parties, family gatherings, and office parties.  Sometimes simple treats are just what’s called for and most of the time it’s what I prefer to make 🙂  These mini Santa hat cupcakes are not only simple but super festive too!   

How to make Mini Santa Cupcakes:

  1. Prepare mini cupcakes accoridng to cake mix instructions. Using the ingredients called for on the box. Allow cupcakes to cool
  2. Pip on some of your whipped topping with a cake decorating bag and tip or with a ziploc bag with the corner snipped off.
  3. Remove leave and stems from your strawberries, cut the top off so you have a flat base.
  4. Place one strawberry, flat base down, on each cupcacke.
  5. Top your strawberry with a bit of whipped topping and sprinkle with a light dusting of powdered sugar if desired.

A Dusting of Sweetness

We like to add a touch of confectioners sugar to our mini Santa hat cupcakes to look a bit like snow.  I would suggest adding the confectioner’s sugar right before serving as after a bit it will get absorbed into the strawberry and mini cupcakes.
