I always start making a few lists so things don’t suddenly creep up on me.  One of the lists I am making is my baking goal list!  I love to bake so I’ve learned to start watching for sales on basic baking ingredients so I have everything on hand.


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!

This recipe is really easy to put together!   You will need a cupcake mix or store bought cupcakes, vanilla frosting, mini marshmallows, red gel food coloring, red sugar, and white edible glitter (optional).

Ingredients Needed to make Santa Hat Cupcakes:


– 6 Prepared Cupcakes, unfrosted
– 1 Can Vanilla Frosting
– 1 ½ cups Mini Marshmallows
– Red Gel Food Coloring
– Red Sugar
– Optional: White Edible Glitter



Color the frosting red, put in a piping bag, and pipe swirls of frosting on each cupcake upwards to a point so it looks like a hat and sprinkle red sugar all over..


Place marshmallows all around the bottom edge of each frosting hat so it looks like the white part of Santa’s hat.  Take 6 marshmallows and dampen with a bit with water, and sprinkle the white glitter all over them. Stick one on the top of each hat.

And there you go!  Santa Hat Cupcakes that are not only cute but they are an easy holiday treat to make!  Enjoy!
