Grinch Christmas Cupcake Toppers

I made these Grinch Christmas Cupcake Toppers simply because I love the Grinch!
"How the Grinch Stole Christmas" is my very favorite Christmas movie.
Seriously, Dr. Seuss was a creative genius.
"You're a monster, Mr. Grinch,
Your heart's an empty hole,
Your brain is full of spiders, you've got garlic in your soul,
Mr. Gri-inch...I wouldn't touch you with a thirty-nine-and-a-half foot pole!"

My favorite part, of course, is when the Grinch's heart grows three sizes.
The despicable bad guy becomes a good guy!
I just love a happy ending.

You can make these edible cupcake toppers with candy melts or chocolate.
 To download my Grinch template below, click on the image to open it.
Then right click on the image and select "Save Image As".
Print the template and tape it to the back of a cookie sheet.
Tape a piece of wax paper on top of the template.

 What You Will Need: 
Frosted cupcakes 
Black candy melts or chocolate chips
Green, red, white and yellow candy melts
Piping bags fitted with small round tip (Wilton #2)

First, fill a piping bag with melted chocolate chips or black candy melts.
Pipe the Grinch outline on the wax paper.

Next, use red candy melts to fill in the santa hat and pupils.

Continue to fill in the green, white and yellow parts.
I found "Vibrant Green" candy melts...a perfect Grinchy color!
If you can't find this color, just mix green and yellow to get the right shade. 

Helpful Hint: Use a toothpick to push the candy melts into the corners
and clean up the edges.

Don't worry if they look messy when you are done...this is the back side!

When the toppers have hardened, carefully peel them off the wax paper and turn them over.
 Place each Grinch topper on a frosted cupcake and enjoy!

"Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before...
Maybe Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store.
Maybe Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more."

Merry Chrismas!

Another Christmas cupcake idea...


  1. Ooooh I like the santa hats too. I love your toppers I just don't seem to have the patience to make something like that.

  2. OH my gosh - this is so much fun. Yours turned out perfect.

  3. Your Grinch cupcake toppers look INCREDIBLE! Wow!!

  4. Love all your cupcakes and cakes. So cute!

  5. they came out so great! Perfect little grinches! i so love working with candy melt this way!!

  6. Wow these are amazing! I wish I had the talent and patience to try these... Super grinchy and SUPER adorbs! Visiting from the Six Sisters linky party! :)

  7. That is so so cool! I would love you to check out my Christmas biscuits post as it would be great to have an opinion!

  8. I love that you have shown your messy back side of the Grinch...back side, not backside! LOL! It encourages me to try this. I both saved and copied the Grinch template. The one I copied into my word program can be sized, so I might start out with one large Grinch for a Whoville cake! I can pick up the wax paper and flip it over onto the cake, then peel back the wax paper. I love that you respond to comments, the comment section is where I pick up the bestest tips!

  9. About how long does it take for the candy melts to completely harden, before removing from wax paper?


Your comments put a great BIG smile on my face!! Thanks for stopping by! :0)
