The Elf Laundry Dessert menu is fun-filled and easy! Use these adorable Christmas candy and cupcake ideas for your dessert buffet.
The Cute Cupcakes:
These are some seriously CUTE cupcakes, and so easy to make. Start with a chocolate cupcake and make frost with peppermint frosting. You can make this by adding a touch of peppermint extract to white frosting. For the easiest ever cupcake decorating ideas…top your frosted Christmas cupcakes with a peppermint candy ball for extra cuteness… and to cover any not so cute frosting mishaps. The finishing touch is the ADORABLE Elf Laundry cupcake wrappers. These Christmas cupcake wrappers come in collections of three perfectly coordinated designs. Hand painted cuteness adorning peppermint cupcakes… what could be better? Use them for all of your cupcake decorating ideas to create polished couture cupcakes every time.
We used the cupcake wrappers to line our cake tier as well. We gave instructions on how to recreate this cupcake display in the last post, so check it out if you missed that. For the sweet plaid border, simply join the plaid cupcake wrappers from your Elf Laundry collection together by inserting the tab of one cupcake wrapper into the slot of the next cupcake wrapper and continue in this pattern until you’ve created a circle. We used 5 wrappers for this. Finally, we created a miniature cake tier with small cake circle placed on top of an empty cupcake wrapper, turned upside down. We placed sweet Oreo bundles tied with a festive ribbon on this tiny cake tier.
The Cotton Candy Display:
Cotton candy is all the rage right now, and it looks like snow if you use white cotton candy! Cute. We created these precious elf hat cones to serve our puffs of white cotton candy. They are made by rolling a piece of citrus green scrapbooking paper into a cone shape. Use your Elf Laundry Christmas cupcake wrappers to form the brim of the elf hat, and staple or glue-dot them into place. Finish the hats off with a handmade pom-pom attached with some hot glue. Fill them up with cotton candy just before your party. We used clothes pins to hang the hats! Really cute.
