Christmas Cupcakes

How to make it

  1. Frost the cupcakes with snowy white icing and top with grated coconut.
  2. Then use a rolling pin to flatten green gumdrops on a piece of waxed paper sprinkled with sugar. Use an aspic cutter or butter knife to cut out holly leaf shapes.
  3. Arrange two or three leaves and a few red candy “berries” on top of each cupcake, pressing them into the rosting just enough to hold them in place.
