How To Make Christmas Present Cupcakes

These Christmas present cupcakes are perfect for beginner and advanced cake decorators alike. Iced in smooth buttercream and piped with a criss cross of color, the colorful bow topper is just a novelty cupcake ring! Imagine that....a cute, simple and quick cake making idea for the Christmas season.

Since these cute little cupcakes are a cinch, we recommend baking them from scratch. We recommend our Classic Chocolate Cake recipe or our Vanilla Cake recipe to start. We would top them with Brenda's Bakery Buttercream for a sweet finish.
