Three words really sum it up: ‘Tis the season. As we approach the holiday season, filled with delights, gifting, receiving, and loving, add a little extra sweetness to the holidays with these Santa hat cupcakes. No matter which holiday you’re celebrating this month, these are delicious, cute, and easy to make!


What you need

  • A box of strawberries
  • A box of cupcake mix (with a flavor of your choice) and all of the remaining cupcake ingredients listed on the box (eggs, etc.)
  • White frosting
  • Toothpicks
  • A bag of mini marshmallows



  • Preheat your oven to your desired temperature as written on the box of your cupcake mix of choice
  • While the oven is preheating, throw together the cupcake ingredients (follow the few directions on the box)
  • Allow the cupcakes to bake and cool for at least 10-15 minutes before continuing
  • Frost your cupcakes with a thin layer of the white frosting
  • Take your strawberries (use one for each cupcake you made, these will be the “hats”) and cut off the green leaves
  • Stick a toothpick into the strawberry so there is a little sticking out of each end
  • Stick the strawberry on a the frosted cupcake
  • Place a mini marshmallow on the top of the strawberry where the toothpick is jutting out
  • With either whipped cream or more frosting, make a ring around the bottom of the strawberry


And there you have it, a Santa hat cupcake.
