North Pole Cupcakes

These North Pole cupcakes are really fun and easy to make. I had fun making them recently as a fundraiser for a holiday bazaar.

To make these easy North Pole Cupcakes you will need:

  • Cake mix
  • Can of frosting
  • Candy canes
  • Sprinkles
  • North Pole labels

To make these cupcakes you can either use your favorite flavor of cake mix or you can use a homemade cake recipe. I made some chocolate cupcakes and white cupcakes, according to the directions on the cake mixes.

You could use white or chocolate frosting to frost these cupcakes. I used white frosting to make it look more like snow.

Next unwrap all the candy canes. You will need two boxes of candy canes to decorate one batch of cupcakes. After the cupcakes have cooled, frost the cupcakes with the icing. Instead of using a knife to frost the cupcakes, I used a pastry tip to give the cupcakes a more decorated look.

To make the "north poles", gently break the curved portion off of each candy cane so that you just have the straight portion. Gently push one candy cane into the center of each cupcake.

To make the North Pole labels you can either make your own or download the labels that I created. I laminated my labels so that they could withstand getting wet or moistened by the frosting.

After you print out the labels, cut them apart and stick them on the candy canes with a little dot of frosting.

That's it! These cupcakes are really easy to make and kids really like them. They are a fun, festive dessert to surprise your friends and family with during the holiday season.
