Not everyone is a skilled baker — but that’s OK. You don’t have to be to enjoy these sweet treats. In fact, there’s no baking involved at all. Consider this your No. 1 holiday hack!

First, get your hands on Walmart’s Marketside cupcakes, like the Triple Chocolate, Red Velvet or Filled Mini Chocolate and Vanilla. Then, gather your favorite toppings and start decorating the cupcakes to make them your own. It’s simple, and no one has to know you didn’t even turn the oven on.

Of course, Walmart makes it easy to go all out this holiday season. Even when things feel messy and chaotic, the retailer can bring you some calm in the form of its quick two-hour delivery and free curbside pickup. You can get groceries, serveware, party decorations and gifts for any holiday occasion without even stepping inside the store. Yes, this includes its tasty cupcakes.

However, you can make Walmart’s holiday cupcakes your own with a few of these topping tips, and kids can help! Read below for tips on how to take your holiday decorating skills to the next level this season.

1. Decorate with Mini Pretzels 

Stick one Great Value Pretzel Mini Twist into the frosting on top of a cupcake. Then, crush up a few mini pretzels and sprinkle them around the top for a sweet and salty flavor combination (including an added crunch).

2. Drizzle with Ghirardelli Classic White Baking Chips

Melt Ghirardelli’s Classic White Baking Chips and drizzle it over a cupcake for some added sweetness. You could also drizzle it over the pretzels before or after topping your cupcakes with them.

3. Dust with Wilton Peppermint Sprinkles

If you like candy canes and peppermint mocha, you need to try these Wilton Peppermint Sprinkles. You can lightly dust your already-frosted cupcakes with them for a zing of festive peppermint flavor.

4. Top with Hershey’s Sugar Cookie Kisses

Hershey’s Sugar Cookie Kisses are the candy brand’s latest holiday flavor, and they are delicious. Unwrap a kiss and stick it in the center of a frosted cupcake for just a little extra holiday cheer.
