Versions of these Reindeer Cupcakes are currently all over the net and I just HAD to have a go. They are so cute!
A definite must for Christmas, these would be the perfect activity to do with the kids!
I have used my own tried and true cupcake recipe and tried to match the decorations as best I could with things found in my local supermarket. I ended up with Chocolate Buttercream for the face and snout, Jaffas for the nose (we can’t not make Rudolf right?!) and Pretzels for antlers. The eyes I was lucky to have already – leftover from Miss Z and her Whale Cake. If you cannot find these ( I got mine at a specialist cake decorating store) you can always just pipe a tiny blob of white icing for eyes and add a black one in the centre.
Honestly, it was as easy as spreading a little buttercream on the cupcake top, piping an extra blob for the snout and adding a Jaffa. Add two eyes just above your snout. The top tip I give you is don’t bother trying to cut your Pretzels – it won’t work (trust me, it took me half a pack to work that out), just take a sharp knife and cut a small opening above the eyes and slide your Pretzel straight in.
Merry Christmas to All!
