    Makes: 12 cupcakes

    • 12 chocolate cupcakes or muffins

    1. Spread the cooled cupcakes or muffins generously with a little more than half of the buttercream, creating a snow-like effect with a palette knife or back of a spoon.
    2. Place the remaining buttercream in a piping bag with a small round nozzle. Pipe rows of rectangles, offset from one another, onto the base of the cupcake to create "bricks".
    3. Mould the red fondant into 24 small cylinders to create Santa's legs.
    4. Mould the black fondant into 24 boots or shoes.
    5. Divide the white fondant into 24 balls, then flatten into round circles. Place the white fondant circles onto the bottom of each leg.
    6. Affix a black boot to the bottom of each leg, then use a spoon to create the soles.
    7. Use your fingers to slightly narrow the other end of each Santa leg, then stick the narrow ends of two legs into a cupcake. Repeat with remaining legs and cupcakes.
