Great ideas for Christmas Cupcakes

I made cupcakes yesterday for our work Christmas Cake-Day (an awesome day where we all contribute baked good and a couple of pounds to raise a bit of money for a children’s Christmas charity). I made mine using a basic vanilla cupcake recipe, if you need one for reference, I recommend this one from bbc food!

While I was researching decorating ideas I came across so many beautiful ones that I just had to share my top five favourites. If you’re thinking of doing some Christmas baking, these are for you!

These are pretty little Christmas tree style cakes.

These blue ones are so elegant and lovely! They’re also a little Frozen-esque, perfect for the little ones (or big ones!)

The cute little fondant stars on the tops of these are such a good idea, like a real tree!

love these snowman cupcakes. They’re so much fun, plus marshmallows are always awesome.

I think these are my favourite. I love a good Santa hat, I am wearing one constantly throughout December!

These are but my favourite few of the millions (no kidding) of ideas strewn across websites like Pinterest. If you’re looking for Christmas baking (or any craft) inspiration, I’d start there!
