These are my tangled Christmas light cupcakes!  Can you guess where my inspiration came from? 😉

I made some of my favorite chocolate cupcakes, then made a half batch of buttercream frosting and simply tinted it a deep green.  I actually used Ateco’s Forest Green Gel Food Coloring.

Using a #4 tip and holding the bag over the cupcakes,  just start squeezing and let the frosting just pile up on itself.

You really cant mess these up… the messier the better!

I then went back in an placed some circle sprinkles from Cake Mate, which I could not find on Amazon, but I believe I purchased at Walmart.

So fun, So easy!  Did I mention how easy these are?

Now if only it were so easy to un-tangle my Christmas tree lights.

    How cute!! So simple too. I’d say you got the color of the wire strands the perfect deep green color. That attention to detail is pretty impressive :)

    Hi Amanda, another amazing treat!

    One question, where did you end off when piping the wires? I always end up with a messy unfinished looking spot…

    Thanks for sharing!

    These look so great! Gives me an excuse to buy some new piping gel and a new decorating tip! I can definately let the children loose with a decorating tip for these too! Loving the ‘messy’ look! Great job!


  1. […] Tangled Christmas lights cupcakes – I am baker – I love how cute these cupcakes are and how they bring back awesome memories of growing up… lights tangled to the max. Have I ever mentioned how much I love frosting. I totally want to lick the frosting right off the top of the cupcakes. Yeah. I’m that kid. […]
