These North Pole Cupcakes are a fun Christmas treat. I served them at an annual Polar Express party that we go to every year.
Every year, my girlfriends and I host fun, themed holiday parties to get our kids in the Christmas spirit. I host the Elf on the Shelf party and my friend, Jill, hosts a Polar Express party. The kids always have a blast.
We also had all kinds of Polar Express themed treats, like train-shaped pizza, hot chocolate (of course!), cotton candy snowballs, and these cute North Pole Cupcakes that I made.
These cupcakes were so easy to put together and turned out super cute! Does dontcha think?!? They would be perfect to send to school or the office for a holiday party. You can even cheat and use store bought cupcakes…I won’t tell!
I also love to make these easy Christmas Tree Cupcakes, too!
