Chocolate Easter Cupcakes

The Best Cutters and Icing Decorations for Christmas Cupcakes

[ad#toppost]

Christmas is the one time of year when you’re able to do something completely different with your cupcakes for everyone!

Don’t be overwhelmed by thinking that you have to spend hours making personalised Christmas decorations, there are lots of excellent cutters that you can use to make outstanding cupcakes.

There are so many cutters and decorations available for Christmas themed cupcakes. Here we’ll go through some of the best:

• Reindeer

The reindeer cutter is very easy to use yet still very effective. When you buy a reindeer cutter set you will get 2 cutters, one cutter is the correct size for normal size cupcakes and the second cutter is the perfect size for mini cupcakes!

Mix a sprinkling of Tylo Powder into some regal icing and roll it out, not too thin also make sure it’s not sticky. When you have the right consistency get cutting! You may have to encourage the antlers out by either tapping the cutter or pushing it out with one of your thin icing tools.

Finish them off by adding a red nose! Roll a small ball of red icing, wait until the reindeer and the nose are dry then stick them together using a clean brush and a drop of water.

Buy the reindeer cutter from Amazon HERE.

Offering Christmas Cupcake Vouchers for your Cupcake Business

[ad#toppost]

You may be fully booked this Christmas but there’s still another way that you can optimise your profits over the festive period. Offer Cupcake Vouchers!

Everyone knows how difficult it can be to buy certain people presents for Christmas (you know who they are), what better way to surprise them than with a voucher for a yummy box of cupcakes, delivery included!

Vouchers are a very easy way to fill your diary up with orders, they also guarantee a regular income once purchased.

The voucher idea doesn’t need to stop with just one gift box though, why not offer a “Cupcake Club” service where your customer can pre pay for 6 – 12 months of cupcakes for someone. Freshly hand delivered cupcakes to their door once per month.

Your customers could choose to have a mixture of flavours or simply have the same delicious flavours each month, remember to decorate them accordingly (male / female).

What Your Cupcake Business Will Need This Winter

[ad#toppost]

Winter’s on its way and for us in the UK it’s apparently going to be a cold one. It’s best to get prepared and ready for the cold wet weather before everyone flocks to the shops to clear them out.

We’ve had to deal with all weather types, fortunately the cold weather is a lot easier to deal with than the extremely hot weather (melting buttercream!)

Here’s some ideas to help you prepare for the winter weather and make sure your cupcakes are delivered on time!

Winter Gloves

Gloves

When you’re out delivering cupcakes over the winter period you’ll definitely need a nice warm pair of gloves otherwise your hands are going to be freezing!

Fluffy gloves won’t be the best option here, you’ll need some gloves with plenty of grip for holding the boxes of cupcakes.

If you’re a touch screen mobile phone user then you should definitely get yourself a pair of gloves with specially designed fingertips that will enable you to use your phone!

Don’t make the mistake of buying a pair of gloves that you have to take off every time you need to answer the phone. They are also essential if you’re going to be using a touch screen Sat-nav while out on deliveries.
