Christmas is the time to indulge. You’ve avoided sweet treats like candies, chocolates and cupcakes all year. But Christmas calls for mouth watering sweets. Every type of sweet goodies is presented on every table, on every party and on every dinner. It is as if the season itself is calling unto us to let ourselves be free from those strict diet for a short while. One easy to make treat is cupcake. These small treats are perfect for someone who has more guests than he or she could ever imagined.
A big cake is just too tedious to make and not everyone can have a bite. Cupcakes make it possible for every guest to have a taste plus every piece has a complete design. Cupcakes are also an outlet of creativity. Play with flavors but especially play with the toppings. Here are some ideas for perfect creative and unique Christmas cupcakes.
