Christmas Cupcakes



Seeing as Christmas celebrations are in full swing, we thought it would be the perfect opportunity to whip up some festive cupcakes for the occasion. With the Christmas air around us everywhere we go, and the beautiful smell of pine from the tree filling the house, we were inspired to prepare an array of cupcakes which reflected this jolly season. We used the same vanilla cupcake recipe as previously posted here, and this new vanilla buttercream recipe which includes a bit of lemon juice, adding a beautiful, light touch and cutting through the usual sweetness of the icing. Using roll out icing dyed various shades, we created little candy canes, stars and holly leaves to sit on top of the cupcakes.

Wishing all of our readers a very Merry Christmas!
