TIP OF THE DAY: Christmas Cupcakes To Buy Or Bake

Many people have a favorite Christmas cake recipe. But how about Christmas cupcakes?

You can purchase a sampler of lovely cupcakes like the ones in the photo (from Williams-Sonoma).

Or, you can do it yourself: Turn plain cupcakes into holiday celebrations with green, red and white icing and some purchased adornments such as:

  • Crushed candy canes, mini candy canes candy cane confetti or an entire round red-and-white peppermint candy.
  • Christmas tree confetti or holly confetti.
  • Candy snowflakes.
  • Gold or silver dragées.
  • Christmas sprinkles.
  •  
    Hanukkah cupcakes are even easier: just blue and white icing, topped with:

  • Blue and white sanding sugar.
  • Blue and white sprinkles.
  • A gold-foil coin.
  • Sugar dreidels.

      The absolute easiest way to make Christmas cupcakes is to purchase paper decorations attached to picks—or make your own. Just stick them in the top of the cupcake.

    Different companies make a variety of designs. The set in the photo is from Williams-Sonoma, and includes festive holiday cupcake papers.

    Holiday cupcake decorations can be found online, at craft and baking stores, and maybe even the baking department of your supermarket.

    Make Christmas/Hanukkah/holiday cupcakes an annual tradition!
