I made these cupcakes for Kaycie's "ELF" party on Saturday night. The little heads are just mini cupcakes turned sideways. The scarves are sour fruit rolls, the eyes are mini chocolate chips and the noses are orange Tic Tac's. They were almost too cute to eat.
Here's another cute idea. Frost cupcakes. Cut the shape of a Christmas light out of a 3x5 note card. Lay it over the top of the frosted cupcake and sprinkle colored sugar on heavily. Remove the template and you have a little Christmas light. The "cord" is made with green gumdrops and green Sour Straw candies.
I'm giving these to my visiting teachers. They are so EASY to make. All you need is a bag of Twizzlers, a bag of Jolly Ranchers and some scrapbook paper. Cut a 12x12 piece of scrapbook paper in half (this makes a 6 x 12). Then cut a coordinating piece of paper to go on top (cut it 4x12). Wrap the paper around the licorice and tape on back, attach a label (I made these on my computer) and tie it up with a raffia bow.
