Sweet Scarlet's Cakes and Cupcakes makes a simple but beautiful Christmas tree cupcake using lots of green tinted frosting and a fondant star topper. Use a strawberry on top of the cupcake then use the frosting!
Christmas Cupcakes: Slice red & green cupcakes & alternate the layers. Fill with marshmallow buttercream (or whatever frosting you like) between the layers & swirled on top. Sprinkle with red & green large non-pareils.
I so didn't want to buy the expensive decorating bags and tips. Simply the best way to get nice lines when icing cookies. A simple syringe will suck up the frosting and dispense it evenly. Why didn't I think of this? And easy for kids to use.
