Reindeer Cupcakes

When you're the "Star Student of the Week" it calls for super awesome snacks!  So, of course we had to do it right and make some festive Christmas treats.  Today, I made Reindeer Cupcakes.  These were so fun and too cute!

 
 
I didn't follow a recipe, just used regular yellow cake mix baked in a muffin/cupcake pan.  While they were cooling, I secured the brown M&M noses to the vanilla wafers with a dab of chocolate icing (place the icing in a Ziploc bag and snip off the corner - this makes it super easy!)  You could also use red M&M's for Rudolph.  After the cupcakes cooled, I iced them with chocolate icing, added the vanilla wafer noses and pretzels.  Then, I used white chocolate chips flipped upside down and squirted on a tiny drop of black gel icing.  Easy peasy!
