You may have already noticed, but this week we’ve been going hard for Christmas. This season is a HUGE event for crafters – arguably the biggest – so we think it’s important to get thinking about our festive makes as early as possible. Our 2-week event celebrates the most wonderful time of the year with innovative Christmas-themed product launches, so we want to highlight some of the best products for your festive projects. In this article, we’re looking at Christmas cupcakes – must-haves in households inhabited by bakers, yuletide enthusiasts, excited children, cake-loving adults… well, that just about covers everyone!
Anyone with kids knows that it isn’t easy to find time to bake – let alone decorate. For this reason, we’re bringing you the ultimate baking hack: cupcake toppers. Forget the days of painstakingly trying to create Santa’s face out of sugarpaste (he’d usually end up looking like he’d been on a week-long party binge). Silicone moulds exist to make decorating your cupcakes much easier and far quicker. Simply press your modelling paste into the mould and then peel it back off; you’ll have an exceptionally detailed imprint. In the spirit of Christmas, here are three festive cupcake toppers that promise to transform your plain cupcakes.
Has Santa ever looked for adorable? This cute ‘head’ topper mould enables you to recreate any kid’s favourite part of Christmas: Santa. Decorate his hat with Wilton Red Food Sprinkles to transform it into his signature style, then add Cake Sparkles for a dazzling finish.
Santa’s favourite reindeer, Rudolph, doesn’t only lead sleighs – he leads cupcakes, too! If you want to give him his renowned red nose, it couldn’t be easier with a Wilton’s Red Food Sprinkles. Your super-cute Rudolph cupcakes are sure to shine brightly amongst the rest.
The final design that’ll prove you have the Xmas factor is the classic snowman. Perfectly sized to top cupcakes, this design makes it incredibly easy to achieve intricate detailing. Show your little one that Christmas really is a magical time of the year, even if snow doesn’t fall!
