I know I am early but planning the holidays already =) Want to make cupcakes for gifts this year and was wondering if you would be so kind as to share what cupcake is 'Christmas' to you. Thanks!

I'd love an excuse to make a cupcake wreath, too. http://www.freewebs.com/davebarb_99/apps/photos/photo?photoid=6236622

I want to give cupcakes for Christmas, too! I am thinking of red velvet with cream cheese icing and some festive and easy decoration. I just think the red is pretty for the holiday and here in the South, everyone seems to like it!

I just love this cupcake:

They are so tasty with a light peppermint flavor, and I love the simple look of crushed up peppermint candy canes on top. I made these last Christmas and they were a hit.

I made an egg nog cake for Christmas and it was yummy. Just sub the egg nog for the liquid and cut back a bit on the sugar. Add a little cinnamon and smidge of nutmeg to the frosting and you're all set.

I love Christmas! I have been thinking about this already too... I think I am going to do a Creme de Menthe cupcake (filled with ganache). I also want to do a Gingerbread Latte cupcake. Haven't quite figured out what the components will be yet though. I just love gingerbread lattes!

Hmm... I'm not sure if it would work for a cupcake, specifically, but my favorite cake recipe for Christmas is the White Spice Pound Cake found in the Cake Bible. Love it. Especially with a light, egg-nog flavored buttercream.

For me its the robin cupcake here:

Typical English Christmas card design. Looks too good to eat.

Of all the Christmas cupcakes I've ever done, my most popular request is the Winter White Cupcake I did. Took a special 1 day Wilton Class and they turned out so good. You can search for Maria46 and fine them in my gallery or you can search for Winter White Cupcakes.

I'm planning on making gingerbread with cinnamon cream cheese frosting and a little gingerbread  man cutout, egg nog with egg nog buttercream, peppermint cake with white chocolate buttercream with crushed candy canes on top, and sugar cookie cupcakes with vanilla buttercream with sanding sugar or a small cutout cookie topper.

sugardaddy129 Posted 22 Nov 2012 , 9:19am

I think you got plenty of ideas on what cupcakes you can make; so would just give you some tips on cupcake boxes. As you just mentioned that you need to gift them, have you thought about the boxes you'll use to pack them up. I think you should buy or make theme-based cupcake boxes, which is Christmas here, of course.

For instance, you may buy a simple yellow colored cardboard box and decorate it using golden sparkle and tie it with a single beautiful ribbon. Be sure to make the knot properly else it will look bad. You can also paste some graphics or logos onto the box like you may write “Happy Christmas” on the box with sparkle or color pens and add a picture of Santa or goodies. It will look amazing.

 

And if you are going to throw a party, you can also place your delicious cupcakes on stands for your guests to enjoy.
