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.

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.

Preparing Your Cupcake Business for the Christmas Rush

[ad#toppost]

Cupcakes at Christmas have become the norm and it’s the one celebration throughout the year where you’re going to see an increase in orders over a short period of time.

Provided you’ve advertised and promoted your christmas cupcake range, you’re likely to be fully booked over the festive period. You may even have to start rejecting orders because you’re so busy!

Promote Your Christmas Cupcakes

Don’t take it for granted that your customers will know that you’re offering anything special at Christmas.Make sure you let them know what you’re offering, whether it’s new flavours specially chosen for the festive period or perhaps you’re offering festive decorated cupcakes. You need to let your customers know.

Many businesses overlook this or might put it off due to not having enough time. Don’t let anything get in the way of promoting your Christmas cupcakes and make time to advertise them. It will be worth it.

Use social networks like Facebook and Twitter to promote your christmas cupcakes. Even if you don’t have a huge following on social networks yet be sure to use it to it’s full potential, it’s free after all! You can use your website too, just add a festive photo and some descriptive text to the home page.

If you have time, make up a box of Christmas cupcakes and take a photo of them to show your customers what you’ll be offering, this will be much more effective that just writing about it.
