I made these at Christmas time – just posting them now! Might try and do an Easter version soon as that would be more season appropriate…

It’s a plain cupcake recipe with equal parts butter, flour, sugar and a couple of eggs.

Each one (apart from the star) has a background consisting of a circle of regal icing secured with some frosting.

To make the decorations I used coloured regal icing, liquid icing to write with/for little details and little silver ball cake decorations that you can find in most shops. I also had a really cool edible gold spray for the bauble cupcake, but I’ve yet to use it for anything else! I dabbed a bit of food dye on for the elf’s rosy cheeks, and to get its pale pinky face I kneaded a bit of food dye into white regal icing.

Santa is my favourite because he looks quite whimsical looking away to the side.
