  • Vanilla cupcakes with white frosting
  • ¼ cup of extra frosting
  • White sprinkles or sanding sugar (optional)
  • Small red cinnamon imperials (one red candy for each cupcake)
  • Mini North Pole Signs

How to make it

  1. Bake your favorite vanilla cupcake recipe and frost with white whipped frosting. If desired, add white sprinkles or sanding sugar.
  2. Break the curved part of each candy cane so that you are left with the straight part of the candy cane as your "pole". The broken end of the candy cane will be the end that is placed in the cupcake.
  3. Add a dab of frosting to the top of the candy cane. Carefully stick a red candy into the frosting to keep it in place.
  4. Cut Mini North Pole Signs along the red border. Add a bit of frosting to the side of each candy cane. Carefully stick a Mini North Pole Sign into the frosting to secure it.
  5. Push the broken end of the decorated candy cane into the cupcake.
