Christmas Cupcake Ideas: Santa Hat Cupcakes For Kid's Parties

Updated on October 14, 2014

Christmas Once Again.

Every year, we say the same thing. "It's hard to believe the Holidays are here already! "

It's true. As soon as Halloween hits, Thanksgiving and Christmas roll in on her spooky heels. And it seems every year merchants eager to enter their highest sales season put the Christmas stuff out earlier and earlier. You can practically shop for all three holidays in one trip.

Creating Holiday Traditions

That feeling of an old year ending and a new one beginning is naturally nostolgic. That's why family traditions are special. We love to cook, create and celebrate in the same fashion each year; yet at the same time, we crave new ideas to test. That's probably how traditions begin in the first place.

This year, we have created our version of cute Santa hat cupcakes to share for our new sensation. They are sure to be a hit at school, church and scout troop parties, bake sales or any holiday gathering with kids present.
