Reviews for Rudolph Cupcakes
"I had a tough time getting the animal cookies to stay in place..."
"Since the cupcakes are just a box mix I am rating the decorating. Super ease & cute idea. I used pretzels fo the antlers instead of animal crackers; they looked a lot better. Also, used Cinnamon Imperials for the noses, since that's what I had on hand. My daughter's 2nd grade class loved them."
"Fun and easy for Christmas"
"My nephew and his class loved this cupcakes or pupcakes as my nephew calls them. They turn out super cute. They were a hit. Also I used cherry sours for the noses since i couldn't find red jelly beans."
"I made these last year for our family Christmas get together - they were a big hit, the kids loved them"
