Strawberry Santa Hat Cupcakes

 
  
I saw this cute Christmas idea for Strawberry Santa Hats on Pinterest
and just knew that I had to put them on a cupcake.

Because EVERYTHING is better on a cupcake!

These cupcakes are super simple to make, so your kids would have fun helping.
I used my Strawberry Cake recipe, which is also super simple (and yummy!)

What You Need:
Batch of cupcakes
White frosting in a decorating bag with large round tip
Strawberries (rinsed with tops cut off)

You can find the red & white striped baking cups here.


Pipe a dollop of frosting on the top of a strawberry.


Turn the strawberry upside down and press on the center of your cupcake.
Pipe some large dots around the base of the strawberry.


Pipe a large dot on the tip of the strawberry.
(I also sprinkled some sugar on the frosting for texture.)


Ho, Ho, Ho!
