Santa Hat Cupcakes

I love Pinterest.  I actually limit myself to only an hour a week because it can suck you in so fast.  I saw this original idea on someone else’s board.  I modified it a tad, because it seems I must always.

Cut the green off of the strawberry.  Stick a toothpick through it so that there is a little on each end sticking out.

Now stick the strawberry on a very lightly frosted mini cupcake.  Place a mini marshmallow on the top of the strawberry where the toothpick is sticking out.

Now take some whipped cream and make a ring around the strawberry.  Ta-da!!  You have a Santa hat! 

I made these this morning for my daughter’s preschool class and their holiday party.  That is one of the reasons the photos are a tad blah.  I had two sets of little hands “helping” me make these.  It was still easy, even with their help.  I love the healthier alternatives for decorations.  There is so much candy around as it is, plus it is super cute.

If you are not on Pinterest and would like to be, please send me an email to momtriedit@gmail.com.  I can send you an invitation.  But fair warning, it is cool.

  7. Oh I get sucked in daily. I'm really proud of myself for actually making or cooking things I've pinned instead of just collecting more pins.

  9. LOVE IT. How long do you think the whip cream will last (transportation time) before it starts to melt?

  11. Brilliant idea. but... i have learn a cool trick from one of the wonderful websites - an alternative to toothpicks - they use spagetti! that way it is not as 'dangerous' and our daughter eats the spagetti stick. our school would not allow the toothpick in the cupcake... Going to try this strawberry cupcake this weekend. thank you! Mandy

  12. How do people eat them with toothpicks in? How do they even know they are there?
