This year, I made Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer cupcakes, and they are by far the cutest and tastiest confections of all my Christmas themed treats I've made so far.

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year

I am a Christmas enthusiast. All of the decorations, Christmas trees, Christmas carols and just the general peaceful feeling in the air excites me and make me one very happy individual. But the one thing I love more than anything about this time of year, is the Christmas themed baked goods that I enjoy making so much! From gingerbread houses to cinnamon cookies, I just can't get enough! This year, I made Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer cupcakes, and they are by far the cutest and tastiest confections of all my Christmas themed treats I've made so far.

Nothing New

If you search for a tutorial on Google for a Rudolph cupcake, you'll find many. But I struggled to find one to my liking. They would either have hard candies on top, which I'm not very fond of, or they would have all these decorations that I would never in a million years find in any store where I live, e.g. candy googly eyes. So I set off to make my own uncomplicated version, and may I just say that I did a pretty decent job? They are so adorable I can't stop looking at them! And I feel almost bad for eating them...
So without further ado, here is my tutorial on how to make these cuties.

You will need:

24 vanilla/chocolate cupcakes

For the ganache:
200g Milk chocolate
100ml Cream

For the decorations:
Mini pretzels
White marshmallows
Smarties
One small packet of Baker's Mini Ginger Nuts (or any other small, round cookie)
White icing (1/2 cup powdered sugar mixed with 2 teaspoons water)

Directions:

Ganache:
Step 1: Heat the cream the in the microwave for two minutes or until it simmers.
Step 2: Add the chocolate to the cream, stirring it gently to distribute the chocolate through the cream until it's melted and forms a creamy mass.
Step 3: Place in refrigerator for between 30 minutes to 1 hour. It should have a peanut butter-like consistency.

Decorations:
Step 1: Frost your cupcakes with chocolate ganache.
Step 2: Place one Mini Ginger Nuts cookie at the bottom of cupcake.
Step 3: Cut a white marshmallow into quarters and place two pieces side by side above the Mini Ginger Nuts cookie.
Step 4: Place a tiny bit of icing to the back of a red Smartie and place it on Mini Ginger Nuts cookie.
Step 5: Place 2 eye coloured (blue, green or brown) Smarties on the marshmallows (no need to add icing, the marshmallows are sticky enough).
Step 6: Break a pretzel in half and stick the two halves into the top of the cupcake for Rudolph's antlers.
And Voilà! A Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer cupcake. Easy!

First Tutorial

I hope that my instructions were clear enough (this is my first tutorial - eep!) and that these cupcakes bring you as much joy as they've brought me! If you are unsure of anything or have any questions in general, please leave a comment and I'll get back to you.

Happy Holidays!
