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)
