Santa Hat Cupcakes
When making Santa Hat cupcakes you are going to want to use your favorite cupcake flavors. Depending on my mood depends on what I use, but I normally use chocolate chip cupcakes, strawberry cupcakes, chocolate cupcakes or Bakery Style Vanilla Cupcakes. If you have a boxed cake mix you were wanting to use, try this awesome way to make a boxed cake mix taste homemade… it really gives you an amazing cupcake or cake!
For the frosting you want to use a frosting that you can color red. I like to use Marshmallow Buttercream, cream cheese frosting or my favorite The best Buttercream Recipe. Again which one you use depends on the mood you are in flavor wise.
You are going to want to make a cupcake frosting swirl, if you have never made a cupcake frosting swirl it is super easy to do! Check out the step by step directions for How to make a cupcake Frosting Swirl.

Santa Hat Cupcake Directions
First make a batch of your cupcakes and let them cool completely. You can pick whatever flavor for the cupcakes that you want to.
Split your frosting into 2 bowls once it is finished being made, putting 70% of the frosting in one bowl and 30% of the frosting in another.
Take the larger amount of frosting and color it red using food coloring. You can use either gel or liquid food coloring, whichever you prefer. I prefer the gel but it is all personal preference. Add food coloring and mix until you get a deep red color that is the same color as Santa’s hat.
Bring these Santa Hat Cupcakes to any party you are going to and everyone will love them! I find transporting them is easiest when I use a covered Cupcake Carrier.
