Christmas Tree Cupcakes
Skip the fancy buttercream — this month, give your cupcakes the Christmas spirit.
- 1 pkg (18.25 oz/510 g) cake mix, any flavor (plus ingredients to make cupcakes)
- 1 container vanilla frosting
- green food coloring
- 12 waffle sugar cones
- Sprinkles (optional)
Use boxed cake mix to prepare 12 cupcakes in the Muffin Pan. In the meantime, fill one Easy Accent® Decorator (use writing tip) with store-bought vanilla frosting. Fill another Easy Accent® Decorator (use rosette tip) with vanilla frosting that's been tinted with green food coloring. Decorate 12 sugar cones with green frosting, starting at the base. (Note: Leave the tips unfrosted.)
Pipe a layer of white frosting on the edges of cupcakes to hold the cones in place. Grab the cones by the tips and press each one firmly onto a cupcake, then finish decorating the tip with the green frosting. And now the fun part — trim your trees with sprinkles, mini candies and more!
