It’s December! Time for Christmas cupcakes

Here’s a set of Christmas cupcakes I made to start the month off right. We ate these while we decorated the house for the holidays. I also had some leftover batter, so I made a little red velvet cake just for fun.

  1. Android gaming during the last fiver years has really exploded and it seems like this trend is here now to stay with an increase of people than ever before purchasing smartphone. The good thing about doing offers on your own phone is that they are mostly absolve to download and perform. Some games can cost you buy they price nothing in comparsion to most normal video games.

  2. I could never tire of reading posts like this

  3. Love these I am definitely going to give them a go. Love the colors

  4. Concerning the mini cherry creamcheese cakes, as vanilla wafter are now too big for foil cupcake liners, I roll out the wafers, add margerine (or butter); mix together and press into bottoms of foil cups; leaves more room for cream cheese, rather than putting the wafter upside down.

    Also, do not add any salt or sugar to crushed wafers.

  5. I love the little santa cupcake! Soooo cute! Say, do you have any holiday contests on this month? I couldnt find any.

  6. hi. i am a pro baker and i love how cute your ideas are. one suggestion, i would like a recipe of your homemade fondant.

  7. Hi Bakerella,
    I am a student doing cake decorating for my Gold Arts Award and I was wondering whether you could answer a few questions to help with my research.
    Please could you send the response via the email provided.
    1) How did you start cake decorating?
    2) How long have you been cake decorating?
    Thank you very much, it is extremely appreciated

  9. adorable!!!!!

  10. First I wanted to let you how much we admire your work here in Spain and send you huge kisses .
    second..and unfortunatelly that’s why I am here now…we found a site selling cookies, cupcakes and cakes using fotos from other sites…including yours..I found those cupcakes and inmediatly recognized your work.
    As it’s a spanish site I don’t know if you care but we thought you should know so here I am..
    regardless of this information….we just wanted to let you know we are huge fans and love your work very, very much….

  11. What kind of tools do use to shape all of your fondant so perfectly.

  12. That’s really beautiful !

  13. wheres the recipe

  14. Hi Bakerella,
    I was just wondering what type of knife you would most recommend for cutting difficult shapes out of fondant? I am having a hard time figuring out what to use. Thanks so much!

  15. I love all these cake pops and ideas!

  16. I love them! I am actually getting paid to make Christmas cupcakes and I think that I will try these.

  17. For those w Ho want to get the solid red fondant, you can buy it pre made at cake baking specialty shops. Otherwise you end up with pink fondant.

  18. Wow, they are sooo cute! I would love to make these. You are just great! There so detailed and perfect! mmmm…

  19. These are so amazing. I can’t wait to make some for Christmas this year. I use marshmallow fondant when I bake and it is so good! I love everything that you make! You inspire me to get better at baking!

  20. WOW! i just stumbled upon this awesome site yesterday, and i’m still stumblin! hehe
    This is so amazing. I’ve been having cupcake/muffin fever for …3 years now. But I can’t say I’ve mastered anything, which is kind of shameful.
    I made my first fondant yesterday, and I’m looking for ideas to decorate them :)
    One more fan to add to your huge set of fans.
    All the best!

  21. Hey, do you have a recipe for these cupcakes i cant find them

  22. WOW these look great for an early creation I will dry it next christmas =)

  23. Maddie – Satin Ice mostly. You can try to make your own. I hear marshmallow fondant tastes pretty good.

  24. Hey bakerella!

    My name is maddie, I am also looking at becoming a pasry chef someday and opening my own bakery. I have used many of your holiday ideas and they have been a big hit with my friends and family. Your ideas are so cute! I have one question tho, what type of fondant do you use? Everytime i use it it’s always the kind that taste horrible! haha so i don’t know if thats just how it always is or if there is a certain kind you make or buy…?

  25. i wish for christmas to be with my family and to open a package that has tons of cake decorating gadgets!lol

  26. Ah okies, no problem bakerella. :-) Just keep up the superb work, yeah? :) What you do, brings a smile to my face. You are great at what you do.

    Thank you!

  27. I have a great recipie of a brownie thats kind of like your red velvet recipe of wiltons , haven’t tried the wiltons on but the brownie one is so good and suppose you could add the red food coloring to it so it would look the same. It also has a cooked topping that tastes sooo good to. Its a bit long but if you email I will send it to you to try and I bet you will put it in your blog it’s that good. FYI I heard that you can use koolaid to color icings and chocolate to get other flavours.

  28. Maggie – I haven’t tried MMF before. Just Wilton and Satin Ice brands mostly.

    Evia – No service and I can’t remember the recipe I used for these – it was a while ago.

    KK – I buy my fondant already made. Saves time so I can get straight to decorating.

  29. Hi bakerella!

    My names KK, Im 14 and I admire all your work! When I grow up I want to be a baking and pastry chief. I’ve tried your recipes and love every single one of them! I can’t wait until I can try this for my family! Any advice for a fondant recipe?? I’ve tried a few but I can’t seem to get it right! Please help!:)

  30. Wow, i was starting to plan my christmas out this year and came across this amazing cupcakes decoration, its so cute and very festive. I thought it’s an ideal and creative thing to do. I wish i could do something like this, I’m honestly inspired.

    I’m no chef but was wondering do you provide a receipe for this or perhaps a service? :-) First time i’ve come across this site and i have to say its superb!

  31. Bakerella, do you ever use Marshmallow Fondant? I have used it a couple times with success for a beginner. I have never tried the Wilton brand. I am wondering which works best. Your creations are amazing and inspiring!

  32. Sorry – I don’t remember what I used. These were done almost two years ago.

  33. Do you have some kind of recipe for those cupcakes? =]

  34. That’s great to know. I still haven’t tried that brand yet.

  35. Those cupcakes are too cute to even eat! When i use red i use the americolor brand it is excellent requires about 1/10th as much as the wilton brand does.

  36. I rolled the fondant and used the circle cutters. Haven’t attempted poured fondant yet.

  37. How cute and festive, I love them. May I ask if you used poured fondant to cover them, or did you make cutouts with a circle cookie cutter?

  38. kielbasatime – Yes I am. Those were actually made with a Duncan Hines cake mix. Not what you’re looking for to win a contest. I’m also looking for a go to scratch one. They are decorated with fondant. And there is a layer of frosting on top that helps the fondant adhere to the cupcake.

  39. these are awesome! are you willing to share the red velvet recipe? there are so many online…(and without reviews) that I am weary of trying them.
    Is the smooth white pieces on top rolled fondant? Do you still have frosting underneath? Sorry for the ques overload…I am going to a holiday party on Friday with a dessert cook-off and I really want to win!

  40. Rosa- I emailed you

  42. Hi audrey

    I used the wilton concentrated paste in the little jar. It was either Christmas Red or Red (no taste). I just used a whole lot of it. My hands were almost wet, but it eventually all blended together. I’m sure there’s a better way, because I have seen some really red reds out there.

  43. Hi there, im a home baker too!

    just wondering how you get your fondant so red.. im using wilton gelpaste colours, but no matter how much i add, i cant seem to get this gorgeous red.. i usually get a sort of intense pink.. hope you can shed some light on this puzzling problem. heh.

  44. thanks… but it’s worth it when I get excited about what I’m working on.

  45. I admire your patience!
