How to Make a Christmas Cupcake Tree

How to Make a Christmas Cupcake Tree. This simple step by step tutorial will help you put together this wonderful Christmas cupcake display.

How to Make a Christmas Cupcake Tree

This easy to put together Christmas cupcake tree is fabulous for your holiday party or get-together. The cupcake stand is simple to dress up, and the cupcakes take hardly any time at all to decorate, yet everyone will think this easy-peasy snack/decor tree took you hours to put together. Nothing could be further from the truth!!

• This Christmas cupcake display was actually part of a children’s Christmas table. There is nothing fancy about it, it comes together easily, and yet it looks great!

• If you’d like you can add strings of popcorn, dollar store lights or knot together licorice for garland.

Note: the star at the top is made out of a Tootsie roll fruit chew. If it is warm in your house, it is going to fall over. The difference in the star shape from cutting it to a few hours later is amazing (it will wilt). Prop it up with the same colored fruit chew behind it (or eliminate the Christmas tree star).

Christmas Cupcake Tree Materials:

• 24 Baked Cupcakes (23 if using the stand shown) using green cupcake liners
Grass Tip 233
• Frosting Bag
• Spatula
Cupcake Stand

• Candy. Lots of different candy! Gumdrops, spearmints, peppermint stars, life savers, fruit chew tootsie rolls, jelly beans for lights… the possibilities are endless!

• Green frosting: I used this recipe: Classic Vanilla Buttercream Frosting Recipe (one batch) with a TON of green colorant (enough so your frosting is vibrant or dark green) + ½ tablespoon of meringue powder
Meringue powder will stiffen to your frosting. If you are transporting and the frosting is touched, instead of smearing, the frosting will just dent (once dry).

• Insert a Grass Tip 233 into the end of a pastry bag.
• Load the pastry bag with green frosting.
• Frost the cupcakes by stipling (bouncing up and down) for a pine needle look. Simply squirt from the pastry bag through the Grass Tip 233 and lift. It goes quite quickly, so do not let the tip intimidate you.

• Decorate tops of cupcakes with candy. Since these are your “ornaments” you can go for a theme, a color scheme, or just place random candies on the cupcakes.
• You can decorate all at once before placing the cupcakes into the tree, or do them one-by-one. If you do them all at once, count the cupcakes per row and stagger the height if that is your plan. You want the taller ones on the bottom, a little less tall next shelf, shorter on the top, and maybe one very tall item at the very top. If you decorate a cupcake and place it on the tree, you can easily see what height should come next. You can also have them less “matchy.” These are all one height, but nothing says you have to follow what we did.

• Flatten one fruit chew tootsie roll and cut out a star shape.
• Place it in one cupcake, and that is the tree topper.

• Place cupcakes in the tree stand.
• The tree in this tutorial was done all at once. However, my niece has done this tree many times over the years, so she knew exactly what heights for the candies. If it is your first time making this Christmas Cupcake Tree, and you staggered the heights, I would suggest the one-by-one approach.
• And that’s it. It took about 45 minutes to do this fun little Christmas cupcake tree, and that includes the cupcake baking time!! A fast, easy way to dress up a Christmas party table.

Easy Halloween S’mores Recipe

Easy Halloween S'mores Recipe. You do not need a campfire to get the great taste of S'mores. Make these delicious Halloween S'mores in your kitchen in about 10 minutes. Great for parties and snacks, these cute little Halloween s'mores are a simple sweet treat adults and children will love!


Easy Halloween S’mores Recipe

You do not need a campfire to get the great taste of S’mores. Make these delicious Halloween S’mores in your kitchen in about 10 minutes. Great for parties and snacks, these cute Halloween s’mores are a simple sweet treat adults and children will love!

These are one of the easiest treats you can make!! And they taste great.

The etymology of an s’mores suggests it is a contraction of “some more” as in “give me some more of that delicious chocolate-marshmallow-campfire-goodness!!”

Notes:

• These are jumbo marshmallows. The larger the marshmallow, the more difficult it is to work with, so keep that in mind. These take several bites to eat. You can use large marshmallows instead for a quick one-bite treat!

• While we used Mini Reese’s Cups, Tootsie Rolls, and Hershey Kisses for toppers (the kisses worked, and looked the best!), you do not “need” a candy topper.

• These are whole, jumbo marshmallows. They will burn quickly. Pay attention when you brûlée as you will probably need to blow out a fire.

• If you are not sure how fast the candy melts in your local grocery store turnover, but some Wilton chocolates. They are a great consistency and generally easier to work with.

• You do not have to purchase colored chocolate melts. You can buy white chocolate and color the chocolate with coloring.

• When working with chocolate, try and dip the darker color first, then a lighter color.

• If you have too much chocolate from your orange base and it forms a puddle, no worries. Allow it to dry and break off the overflow. No one will notice as you are dipping in yellow chocolate which will cover it.

• You can dip in your Graham cracker crumbs on just the bottom if you like. We went higher on this one.

• You do not have to do black-purple-orange. You can do black alone, black-purple, black-orange, purple-orange, black-green – whatever color combo you like! Some of these are three colors, some are two, and some are one color.

• You can use a fork inserted into the marshmallow to dip in chocolate or your fingers.

• Remember to allow the chocolate to dry, so you do not make finger prints in the chocolate.

• These are so stinking cute it isn’t funny. These photos truly do not do them justice. Make them; you will be glad you did!
