Cupcakes can be used as gifts for many different occasions. These particular ones are made of chocolate, and are topped with frosted green “Christmas trees” that have been covered with edible pearls that resemble ornaments. The Google topper that has been placed on top of each in lieu of a star lets the recipients know who presented them with the delicious treats. Of course, this is a holiday example, but you can hand them out as birthday gifts or for any holiday that you can think of!

The color of red velvet cupcakes automatically make them a candidate for classic Christmas treats. When you add in some green tinted cream cheese frosting (or leave it alone and take advantage of its natural white color) and possibly some sprinkles or colorful edible decorations, you are left with a Christmas-themed cupcake that can be served all December-long. These particular cupcakes are baked in standard cupcake liners, although you can substitute holiday ones to amp up their level of fun!

Christmas may be over but that doesn’t mean that you have to stop trying these beautifully baked Christmas tree cupcakes with tiny Christmas ornaments on top. The cupcakes are made out of red velvet cake. These cupcakes however are ideal for people who don’t have a sweet tooth. To perfectly compliment the red velvet cupcakes a cream cheese is used for the frosting. The frosting are covered with melted candies and tiny colorful M&Ms to serve as the Christmas ornaments, and topped with a brightly yellow star. A glass of milk will help balance the red velvet taste and the sweetness of the frosting and ornaments.

Baking inspiration can come from many places: a cookbook, a novel, or even everyday life. The middle option is the case with these Christmas cupcakes. Inspired by the book “Christmas at the Cupcake Cafe,” these mocha candy cane cupcakes have a deep, rich mocha chocolate peppermint base, a generous dose of peppermint Swiss meringue buttercream frosting, a lovely drizzle of (you guessed it!) even more chocolate, and a sprinkling of tiny peppermint bits to top them off.

Just because you plan on serving cupcakes at your Christmas parties this year, that doesn’t mean that they need to be decorated with holiday-themed fondant wreaths, santas, snowmen or elves. In fact, they can be elegant and simple, yet holiday-ready at the same time. A beautiful edible cherry, leaf or button coated in edible gold glitter and placed on top of a vanilla flavored, white frosted cupcake can set the holiday mood just as much as one covered in red and green.
