Hope you had a good weekend and are gearing up for a wonderful holiday week! I made these cute little viking hat cupcakes today for Zephan’s preschool birthday snack. Just thought I’d post them in case one of you is in need of a simple, cute themed cupcake idea!
The cupcakes are made from a gluten free mix. The frosting is vanilla buttercream (uber delicious recipe follows), the horns are caramel bugles, and the armor beads are cupcake pearls. I used foil wrappers in copper and silver and tinted the frosting with Wilton black and copper gel food coloring.
Vanilla Buttercream Frosting
- 3 C powdered sugar
- 1 C (2 sticks) butter
- 1 t vanilla
- 1 1/2 T your choice flavored creamer or cream (half and half works too)
With a mixer (hand mixer is fine), mix together sugar and butter on low speed until well mixed. Then mix for an additional 3 minutes. Add the vanilla and creamer and mix for another 2 minutes or so. Mix until it’s light and fluffy and spreadable. Yummo! Enjoy!

Love this! Used this idea for my sons' birthdays in December. It went over well!
oh my kids are obsessed with this movie. we'll sure have to make these
you constantly amaze me.
and that key? sooo cute.
Those are too stinking cute! My youngest would just love those. She just loves that movie.
Those are darling!! We went to see that movie w/ our grandgirls and when we have our next visit, we are making these!!!
These are so cute! We just watched the movie for the first time this weekend and we loved it!
While I have no reason for a "How to Train your Dragon" party, I'm of 100 percent Swedish descent & we love anything to do with our Viking heritage. My family will get such a kick out of these!
Those are way cute! Have you tasted the caramel Bugles??? Let's just say that if I were to make those cupcakes, there probably wouldn't be any horns! 😉
Cute! Cute!! I am the J snack lady. I think they are getting Jemma's Jiggly Jello Jiggler J's! That is about all I have come up with!
I love these and the French Wired Tiered Stand! Hope you love it too!!
What a great idea!! You will have to check out my turkey cupcakes on my blog!

So cute and fun! They sound easy enough to make just because. I think these are going to be the perfect bribe for potty training. Thanks for sharing you creative genius!
P.S. How long are you going to make us wait for your adorable ornaments?!
