Spread the buttercream icing over the top of cooled cupcakes or muffins.
Pour the red sugar into a shallow dish, then dip the lower third of each cupcake into the sugar. Create a white border for the hat by placing about six white chocolate buttons or chips at the edge of the red sugar section.
Add two candy eyes or mini chocolate chips as eyes then create the nose by placing a red sweet at the centre. Sprinkle the bottom of the face with some coconut for a beard. Finally, place one single white button or chip at the top of the hat as a pompom.
