Man of the Season Cupcake

Man of the Season Cupcake
We’ve gone sweet on Santa! His head is a molded candy lollipop you make ahead of time. Use the painting method to give your pop the fine details you see here.


step 1

In advance, mold Santa candy faces with lollipop sticks attached; refrigerate to set and unmold.

step 2

Bake and cool cupcakes. Ice cupcakes smooth in red. Use tip 10 and red icing to pipe arms. Use tip 47 and black icing top pipe belt and tip 2 and yellow icing to pipe buckle. Use tip 2 and white icing to pipe zigzag fur on center seam of jacket and on cuffs.

step 3

Flatten spice drops slightly and shape into ovals for boots; attach with icing.

step 4

Insert Santa candy head into cupcake; trim lollipop stick if necessary.

*Note: Combine Christmas Red and Red-Red for red shown.
