'Tis the season when you're sure to need a special dessert to bring to a Christmas party or school bake sale. With this easy decorating tip, you and your kids can turn a batch of homemade or store-bought cupcakes into a festive treat.
Frost the cupcakes with snowy white icing and top with grated coconut.
Then use a rolling pin to flatten green gumdrops on a piece of waxed paper sprinkled with sugar. Use an aspic cutter or butter knife to cut out holly leaf shapes.
Arrange two or three leaves and a few red candy "berries" on top of each cupcake, pressing them into the frosting just enough to hold them in place.
