If you are having a Holiday Party then having the kids make these Reindeer Cupcakes is a perfect activity that is not only fun, but serves a double purpose. The kids get to create their own cupcake and then enjoy it when they are done. This cupcake is so simple to make and looks adorable. Bake and Cool your cupcakes before hand and let the kids do all the frosting and decorating.
Here is what you will need to create this Reindeer Cupcake:
- Baked and Cooled Cupcakes – Flavor of Choice
- Chocolate Frosting
- Chocolate Sprinkles
- Mini Marshmallows
- Gum Drops
- Red Hots
Take your Chocolate Sprinkles and have them in a bowl big enough that you can dip the top of your frosted cupcake in. Let each guest frost their cupcake then dip it into the Chocolate Sprinkles to get a light coating. Then break up a pretzel and stick them in to create the Antlers – they do not need to be perfect, no Antlers are. Stick on the Mini Marshmallows for the eyes, add the Gumdrop Nose and a Red Hot for the mouth. Of course you can change the candy around any way you would like – I think what really makes this Reindeer Cupcake is the Antlers.
