Hello Southern Fairytale fans! I’m Liz from Hoosier Homemade. I’m super excited to once again be sharing for the Holiday Bake, Craft & Sew Along. Do you remember
the Chocolate Spoons from last year? No…well you better head on over and grab the recipe! They are perfect for the Holiday season gift giving or even as a special treat to go with your hot cocoa.
Over on Hoosier Homemade, I share lots and lots of cupcakes, if you are a cupcake lover, be sure to check out Cupcake Heaven, it has over 200 ideas for you. So I found it only fitting that I share a delicious cupcake with you all! These Candy Cane Cupcake Shooters are as fun to put together as they are to eat! They are simple but elegant with a little whimsy at the same time. And they are certainly quick, which is great this time of year.

The ideas are endless for these fun little shooters. You could certainly change up the color of cupcake, the flavors and of course the decorations, depending on what occasion you are celebrating.

Any type of small glass with work, I found these at Pier 1 and they were around $1. You may want to serve them with a spoon though, depending on the size of your glass.

  1. They are lovely as far as presentation, my question is how do you eat them? Not sure I would want to “shoot” all that in my mouth at one time.

  2. They have sets at Bed Bath and Beyond that are these types of glasses with mini spoons – perfect for this – will have to add to my Christmas list 😉

  3. The presentation is hilarious. I was thinking it’s an ice cream from a glance. I’m commending the color combinations, it’s very colorful and striking for the kids. This candy cane shooters will always find its place on all ages with a child at heart. Can we use also other kind of jars for more presentations?
