Santa Claus Cupcake by 5th Avenue Cake Designs

Santa claus spreading good cheer!

Christmas time seems to bring out my inner child. I remember waiting for Santa Claus is Coming To Town

to  air every year (this was prior to VHS and DVDs). I could not wait to see Fred Astaire (he happens to be in another favorite Christmas movie, Holiday Inn) narrate the show as a mailman.

The cupcakes above are inspired by both Fred Astaire and and the movie Santa Claus is Coming to Town.

 The cupcakes need to be flat for the Santa Claus design, if your cupcakes are domed cut the tops off with a serrated knife, cover with a thin layer of marzipan,

allow to set overnight.

For the rim of the hat, the pom pom ball, mustache, beard, and whites of the eyes you need to knead a 75/25%  of gum paste and white fondant, (75% fondant 25% flower paste (gumpaste)
