Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer Would Approve of This Cute Reindeer Cupcake:
His big red nose is made from hot tamale candies and really lights up his cute little face.
This Christmas reindeer cupcake is set at a skill level of medium but it actually very easy to create.
Only a few items are needed to make him and this little reindeer is a great cupcake to have your children help out with. Just keep an eye on the antlers though, kids really can not resist eating them before they go on the reindeer head.
What you will need to make the reindeer cupcake:
- pre baked cupcakes
- cake decorators icing Vanilla and Chocolate
- black icing or piping gel
- red icing or piping gel
- blue icing or piping gel
- melted chocolate for the antlers
- hot tamale candies for the nose
First Make Your Chocolate Antlers:
Melt down some chocolate and pipe the antlers on a sheet of wax paper:
How to Figure Pipe the Reindeer Cupcakes:
Start by icing the top of your cupcakes with just a swirl effect using your large start tip.
Next, using a large piping tube, start piping the reindeer head on the cupcake with chocolate flavored icing.
You will use a heavy pressure keeping your piping bag straight up and moving upwards quickly to form the reindeer head.
Next create the front of the reindeer face using more chocolate icing. Make two small puffs one next to the other for a puffy looking mouth area.
Next, place the chocolate reindeer antlers on the head. One on each side:)
Place both antlers on and then cut off an end tip of a hot tamale candy and gently place in center of mouth puffs.
Next, start creating the mouth and
eyes by outlining first with black icing or piping gel.
Fill in the eyes with white icing and then a bit of blue icing.
Fill in the mouth with a bit of red icing and this reindeer cupcake is ready to rock.
