Rudolph the Red-nosed Cupcake Recipe

Rudolph the Red-nosed Cupcake Recipe

Your family will shout with glee at the sight of this fun and simple treat - a cupcake fashioned after a certain Christmas Eve sleigh guide.

Ingredients

  • A cooled cupcake (baked from your favorite recipe) Chocolate frosting
  • Round, red lollipops (we used a Blow Pop)
  • M&M's candies
  • Black decorators' gel frosting
  • Pretzels
  • Red shoestring licorice

Instructions

  1. To make one, first frost a cooled cupcake (baked from your favorite recipe) with chocolate frosting.
  2. Unwrap a round, red lollipop (we used a Blow Pop), trim the stem slightly, and stick it into the center of the cupcake for Rudolph's very shiny nose.
  3. For eyes, set 2 M&M's candies in place, then dot them with black decorators' gel frosting. Carefully break large thin pretzels into antler shapes (this may take some practice!) and insert them into the top of the cupcake. Finally, add a short piece of red shoestring licorice for a mouth.
