Santa Hat Cupcakes are so easy to make that you will make them a new family baking tradition this year!

These delicious bites of red velvet cake will delight everyone this holiday season and will leave your guests saying, “Can I have the recipe for these Santa Hat Cupcakes please”?

Each year in December, we set aside one day to do all of our holiday baking.  It’s a fun tradition I started with my girls when my oldest was little.  It’s a fun way to create not only memories but cute Christmas desserts like these Santa Hat Cupcakes and let’s not forget our North Pole Christmas Cupcakes!

Santa Hat Cupcakes

Holiday baking is so much fun!  Whether you do it by yourself, your family, or your friends, it just really seems to set the Holiday mood once the baking is done!  Maybe it’s the smell of Vanilla waffling through your house.  Or maybe it’s the smell of the red velvet cupcakes that are baking when you are making these fun Santa Hat Cupcakes!

CAN I MAKE MY OWN GO TO RECIPE FOR THE RED VELVET CUPCAKES?

Absolutely!  You can use either a store bought box mix or make your own from scratch.  Totally up to you!

DO I HAVE TO USE AN ACTUAL PIPING BAG OR CAN I USE THE READY TO GO FILLED PASTRY FROSTING BAG?

That is totally up to you!  You can do what either you prefer!  I have used the ready to go filled pastry frosting bag before and it’s a great timesaver AND it’s just the right consistency!  You could pipe with vanilla frosting, then sprinkle red sugar on the hat to make it red.

 

Here is a great recipe to make Santa Hat Cupcakes and  I hope it will become a favorite for your family!  Plus this is a great recipe to get the kids involved with!
