Candy Cane Toppers

Easiest Candy Cane Topped Cupcakes.
This time of the year, I need seasonal treats that are 1) quick to produce but, 2) add to the festivities. Do you, too? These are perfect. 1) Bake. 2) Frost 3) Top 4) Take!
(They're beautiful on cakes, too!)

Make your favorite cupcake or muffin. Frost or leave plain ---- according to your preferences. Decorate by unwrapping the candy cane and inserting it in the middle of the cupcake. The above muffin is a vanilla muffin with cream cheese frosting (recipe here) topped with sprinkles of candy cane and one single candy cane. Other house favorites are chocolate (recipe and frosting here) or gingerbread cupcakes, too. Place these on a wide tray to serve and you have a small winter wonderland.
