You have combined one of my favorite foods, cupcakes, with one of my favorite candies, Sour Punch Straws, with one of my favorite 90s home decor motifs, the American Southwest.

I am a Christmas nut and am always looking for ideas that could be adapted! These cupcakes look so good and could so easily transformed in Christmas cupcakes, of the greet swirl in the middle had edible decorations on it! I think they would be super cute for Christmas cup cakes, can't wait to try them out!

Super clever ideas for cupcakes. These would work for a lot of parties!
