The Easiest Ornament Cupcakes
For this recipe, I grabbed a basic cake mix in a box to use. I find that it is easy, allows me to cut back a little time and I still get amazing and tasty results. You are more than welcome to use your favorite homemade recipe. Then with the frosting, I grabbed our favorite kind and used it. Since you are creating a thin layer of frosting on top and then decorating, I love that you don’t have to master piping skills for this type of cupcake! Saves so much time!
How to Make Ornament Cupcakes
Make your cupcakes, and then apply a smooth layer of frosting on your cupcakes. Place your Rolo gently on top of the icing at the top of a cupcake. Grab your red and green M&M’s and turn them sideways to stick into the frosting. This cupcake design can be made in a hurry, I love how quick it is to make and decorate.
I always like to place my Rolo first so it acts as a guide to the top point of the cupcake when I go to make the candy garland. Plus the toppings add so much sweetness to these tasty cupcakes.
