The Figured Piped Santa Cupcakes
are # 3 in….
“The 25 Days Of Christmas Cupcakes Challenge”
Santa Would Be Proud, But I wouldn’t leave these for him on Christmas Eve..
The Santa head is all icing and is figure piped using 3 different cake decorating tips.
Only two food colors are needed so that save time in mixing colors. This Santa has blue eyes but looks really cute with green ones also. I also find that using the no taste red food color works much better than the Christmas red food color. You will get a much deeper red color using the no~taste red. The Christmas red comes out too light and looks more like a pinkish color.
What You Will Need To Decorated The Santa Cupcake:
- pre~baked cupcakes
- cupcake liners
- professional cake decorators icing
- red food color
- blue or green food color
- Cake Decorating Tips # 18, # 21 and # 4b
- Wax or Parchment paper for the mouth. “I find it best to use the wax or parchment verses the tip for this, you can make much thinner string work.”
How To Figure Pipe The Santa Cupcakes:
Start by icing the top of your cupcake with just a thin layer of icing.
Next, Take your large piping tip and begin piping the Santa head. Use medium pressure and move up at medium speed.
Next, using tip # 21 start creating the Santa beard, hair and mustache.
Next, start figure piping on the Santa hat.
Next pipe on a red nose and blue eyes..
