Once cool, open your frosting and give it a good stir. 

Vanilla Frosting

To decorate I did two styles. For the first I used a spatula to spread the frosting over the cup cake.

Next I sprinkled the cake with reindeer sprinkles.

For the ones with the Malteaser reindeers, I spooned out a small amount of cake from the centre.

I covered the top in frosting and added the reindeer.
