Reindeer Cupcakes

Today I have some super cute Reindeer Cupcakes for you to make. These are crazy easy, but oh so adorable.

Are you like my family and love to get messy in the kitchen? From peanut butter fudge, to Christmas tree brownies, my kids and I love to hang out in the kitchen, especially around the holidays. Don’t you?

However… I have a lot of kids. So complicated recipes are not my thing. They (I mean me) like easy recipes that the don’t require a lot of thought. Plus I love the look on my kids faces when they made their own dessert. Their smiles are just perfect, and these reindeer cupcakes are perfect for your next kid friendly baking event. 🙂

I make everything really simple by purchasing what I can on Amazon. Especially the candy because have you tried taking kids to the store and buying candy? 🙂


Here is what you need to make these Christmas Cupcakes:

1 box yellow cake mix

Red food coloring

Cupcake liners

Small candy canes

Red candy for the nose—I used the Christmas packaged crispy M&M’s (red and green)


  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • 2 sticks butter
  • 4 C powdered sugar
  • 3 T heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 sandwich sized zip lock bag
  • 1 large zip lock bag
