Hi, my name's Harpreet. I'm from a company called Crumbs Couture Cupcakes in London. Today, I'll be showing you various techniques and recipes to help you decorate cupcakes.

So, take some red icing, make sure that your surface has got some icing sugar on it so that your icing doesn't stick and what you basically want to do is to make a triangle shape with the icing in your hand and this symbolizes Santa's hat.
So, just keep making the red shape into sort of triangle, make it quite flat and then have it curl over on one side like so. There we go and just leave that on one side to dry. Take a cupcake and take some icing.
This butter cream icing has been made by combining icing sugar with butter and a bit of milk and some colorant, and pop that onto your cupcake. You can use a spatula, a knife, you can use a piping cone but in this instance, I want to keep the cake just quite flat so that our Santa can sit quite nicely on there. The reason I've used this colour of icing is so that obviously, this would represent Santa's face so it's like a skin colour rather than using white where Santa's beard obviously wouldn't show up.
So, make a flat top to your cupcake and place that down and then just continue to spread out Santa's hat slightly so that you can see the shape of the hat being made like so and then just pop that on top like that. Then taking some white butter cream, just put a bubble on the end of Santa's hat and another one going along and there we have Santa's hat, it's already taking shape. Next, if we take some black icing and actually give Santa a face, then the next thing we need to do is to basically pipe his beard on and finish him off with some edible glitter.
So, just pop that on a teaspoon and sprinkle that on to Santa to just make his hat and his face shine a little, gives it a bit of a festive look. And that is how to make Santa cupcakes. .
