I was playing around with making some Christmas cupcakes and came up with these easy candy cane cupcakes. They’re so simple and fun–and delicious!
Candy Cane Cupcakes
Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, we have a biiiit of a Christmas obsession. Ok, that’s a massively understated understatement of epic proportions. It’s Christmas here 24/7/365. For real, if it’s red and white and has a little glitter or holly leaf, I am in. So, it wasn’t any surprise to me when I was making cupcakes that I made these candy cane cupcakes.
Seriously, these peppermint cupcakes are one of the easiest Christmas cupcakes I’ve ever made. If you’re ready to make a fun cupcake for a Christmas party, let’s get started.

Tips to Make peppermint cupcakes
- Start with this easy Lazy Girl cupcake recipe. Its so simple and absolutely perfect every time!
- You can certainly buy you fondant for your candy cane cupcakes–I’ve done that and its fine, but if you want some amazing tasting goodness that’s super simple to make, check out my friend’s recipe for simple marshmallow fondant.
- For me, the uniqueness of these cupcakes is that they don’t require a ton of frosting. If you’re making your own, as I’ve got it down in the recipe, below, that’s awesome. But if you’re making it with canned frosting (that’s fine too, no judgement–I had just run out), you should only need to use about 1/2 of the can. So, if you make a second batch of peppermint cupcakes, you have plenty in just one can!
