  • 1. Arrange
    10 minutes

    Arrange the cupcakes in the shape of a sweater.

  • 2. Spread
    10 minutes

    Top each cupcake with a dollop of red buttercream, reserving at least 1 cup, and spread the surface out evenly with a small offset spatula.

  • 3. Pipe
    15 minutes

    Place the remaining red buttercream into a piping bag and cut the end so that about a ¼ inch round of frosting pipes out. Repeat with the white, green, and black buttercream. Use the red, white, and green buttercreams to pipe Christmas colored stripes on the collar, cuffs, and bottom of the sweater.

  • 4. Decorate
    15 minutes

    Use the black buttercream piping bag to doodle a string across the torso of the sweater. Place the M&Ms across the string to create a string of Christmas lights. Cut the sour candy strips to the appropriate length so they fit onto the sleeves of the sweater. Place 4 strips on each arm.
