Pretty Candy Cane Christmas cupcakes | EASY DIY


On the weekend I made some cupcakes for a friends Christmas dinner, I think they turned out really cute in these pastel shades of pink and blue

I wanted the cakes to be happy and bright like the Australian summer but still, Christmas looking, no one wants to eat a snowman cupcake when its 40 degrees 😂

TIP - Look for mini Candy Canes at your local supermarket, a month before Christmas time there is normally a great range of flavours and colours

 How to make Pastel Candy Christmas Cupcakes

SUPPLIES YOU NEED
  • vanilla cake mix
  • frosting
  • food colouring
  • mini candy canes
INSTRUCTIONS TO MAKE YOUR CANDY CANE CUPCAKES
  • Mix your cupcakes to the packets instructions or use your favourite recipe and make from scratch
  • Divide the mixture into 2 bowls and  add food colouring so you can create the 2 tone cakes
  • Cook per instructions
  • If you do not have any pre-made frosting then an easy butter frosting is the best to use. Add desired food colouring to the frosting to match your candy canes and place on cooled cupcakes.
  • Place some candy canes in a plastic bag and with a rolling pin, crush them to create the sprinkles for the top of the cake.
  • Stick a candy cane in the top and just like magic..... yummy Xmas cupcakes for everyone to enjoy!
I used pink butternut candy canes and blue blueberry ones but next time I will use the normal peppermint ones and see how they taste. I purchased these Candy Canes from my local supermarket

HAPPY HOLIDAYS 💗
