Now THIS is a creative way to create some Christmas themed cupcakes! I found this cupcake picture on Tumblr but there wasn't a guide on how to recreate it. After looking at the cupcake I noticed that the "hat" is actually an upside down strawberry, probably with the top cut off to have a flat bottom. The brim and pom pom looks to be made up of frosting, crystalized sugar and white ball sprinkles, which I'm sure can be interchanged with any type of white sprinkle. In the spirit of Christmas this cupcake might be better suited to be Red Velvet with some cream cheese frosting.
Now go on and try this one for yourself!
