Christmas desserts – Cupcakes

The series of Christmas inspiration posts continues with a heavily illustrated article about Christmas desserts recipes, mainly cupcake designs to drool over. Don't forget to check out the rest of the Holiday themed articles I published so far!

I’m always looking for easy Christmas cookies and there are so many mind-blowing adorable cupcakes ideas, I had to make a separate post about them.
You can use basic cupcake recipes as a base and then go crazy with the decorating part – we’re talking fun cupcake wrappers, cupcake liners and any other cupcake supplies you can think of.

I would recommend to start with simple vanilla cupcakes (but there are hundreds of recipes for cupcakes online so you can choose your favorite flavor) which are an easy to make dessert and then choose a few of these fancy cupcakes designs and bring them to life. I'm partial to banana cupcakes and red velvet cupcakes so these are the flavors I plan to work with.

In-house cupcake bakery - festive bows, snowflakes, polka dots and cranberries are perfect to transform your sweet treats into official Christmas party food 

Snowflake cupcakes - use a classy color combination - how about blue and white frosting on chocolate cupcakes?

 The snowmen with earmuffs have to be the cutest winter themed cupcakes ever! 

 Red velvet cupcakes with white frosting and North Pole/Merry Christmas toppers (left), Mini holiday cakes (right)

 Christmas Tree Cupcakes (use ice cream cones to get the tree shape and cover them with frosting)   adorable Penguin cupcakes (made with fondant)

 Star shaped sprinkles on delicious gourmet cupcakes go a long way!

The ever so popular Christmas tree cupcake using green frosting and strawberries or ice cream cones to get the shape right!

The cupcake Christmas tree and edible Christmas wreath are also brilliant ideas!

Lovely Christmas treats for kids - Santa Hat Strawberry Cupcakes and adorable Minnie Mouse cupcakes (that can double as original birthday cupcakes anytime)

 Banana cupcakes decorated with sugar for a snowmen look (left), Sugar and Spice Cupcakes with Sugar Snow

Hot Chocolate Cupcakes get a festive look using red stripped cupcake liners and candy canes for decor

Peppermint Bark Cupcakes (up) and Hello Kitty Christmas Cupcakes (down)

Christmas treats recipes - cute elf cupcakes, lovely cupcake stand

 Cupcake decorating at its best - Candy Cane and chocolate pieces Sleds cupcakes

 Maybe the best cupcake idea so far - reindeer cupcakes made with round candies and cookies, chocolate frosting and pretzels. I'm totally going to make them!

 HoHoHo - here goes Santa down the chimney! I think he might be stuck in the snow now!

 Christmas party cupcakes (in lovely shades of soft green, mint, red and white) on three storey cupcake stands

 Vintage Pastel Christmas Dessert Table

Christmas food ideas - Raspberry Hot Chocolate Cupcakes

 Reindeer cupcakes again - it never gets old!

Joyful holiday cupcake boxes and toppers!
