Christmas Cut-Out Cupcakes

If you're a long-time reader, you might remember the Christmas Cut-Out Cupcakes I did for Mandy at Sugar Bee Crafts last year.  Here's a new spin on The Christmas Cut-Out Cupcakes using some of my favorite Nestle candies.  Disclaimer:  I was provided with candy by Nestle and compensated for designing this project and writing this post.  All opinions expressed are my own.

I've actually made quite a few versions of Cut-Out cupcakes for different holidays.  Cut-Out cupcakes are one of my favorites for taking to kids' parties because the frosting is hidden just under the surface.  That makes them easier to transport and keeps the frosting of the kids faces.  Not to mention, it also discourages the kids from licking the frosting off and leaving the cupcake.

Using Wonka Nerds for the sprinkles make the decorating easy, as they're much easier to control the placement than traditional sprinkles.  We also loved the Wonka Gobstoppers for some fun.

Seth came up with our favorite...and easiest design...all on his own.

Head over to Nestle's Simply Celebrate blog for the simple secret to getting the cupcakes mounded enough to make these work.
