Christmas Cupcake Decorations for Kids and Adults

Christmas is coming up fast and bakers everywhere are in the kitchen creating all of the best Christmas desserts. One favorite Christmas dessert recipe is Christmas cupcakes. Of course, the best party about a Christmas cupcake is the Christmas decorations. When it comes to cupcakes, Christmas cupcakes are among the most highly loved because of their Christmas spirit. This is one of the many reasons that cupcakes make a great addition to any Christmas party and are always a huge hit.

The best Christmas cupcake ideas are of course those that express Christmas cheer and creativity. Cupcake decorating possibilities are endless when you allow your imagination to run free. No one says your cupcakes have to be boring. In fact, they don’t even have to resemble a traditional cupcake! Instead of using a traditional pan for baking your Christmas cupcakes, try using a giant cupcake pan. You’ll have more room for cupcake decorating and you’ll certainly have a unique cupcake.

Create a winter wonderland with your Christmas cupcakes by using a snowflake cake mold rather than traditional baking pans. Once you’ve finished baking the cupcakes, decorate the snowflake design using white icing and a decorative applicator tip. Finally, sprinkle edible glitter over the top of your Christmas cupcake.

Christmas cupcake decorations have no limits when it comes to possibilities. You can decorate them as simple or as extravagant as you’d like. In the end, the important thing is that you have fun as you’re baking cupcakes because you never know when you may be creating a life-long Christmas memory.

Best Gingerbread House Ideas: Gingerbread House Pictures

Gingerbread House Pictures and Ideas

One of the greatest things about Christmas is that it’s the perfect time to build a gingerbread house. And what makes a gingerbread house wonderful? The creativity, of course. The possibilities when making a homemade gingerbread house are absolutely endless, limited only by your creativity and ideas. Some gingerbread houses are small, some are large. Some are simple while others are elaborate and intricately detailed.  Because there are so many possibilities, sometimes just knowing where to start can seem overwhelming. For that reason, I’ve gathered up some of the best gingerbread houses pictures to give you a head start on some great ideas for your gingerbread house decorations.

I absolutely adore this gingerbread house cabin. With the red roof and the beautiful detail, just looking at this photo has me wishing for a winter getaway in a beautiful log cabin.

If you’re looking for gingerbread house ideas that have a little more Christmas spirit in them, this peppermint gingerbread house packs a lot of inspiration. With a candy cane walkway and peppermint roof tiles, this one sure is one minty holiday treat.

I love how creative this particular gingerbread house is. It provides a simple yet unique design idea that you could easily create at home on your own. Using your favorite cookies and starting with the largest, stack a few cookies on top of one another to create your tree. Then, drizzle white icing over the top of the cookies and let it run down the sides of your “Christmas tree”. Voila! You’ve got a unique gingerbread house idea that’s packed full of sweetness :o)

Having a Christmas wedding? This particular gingerbread house design is certainly fit for a princess and if you or someone that you know is going to be having a Christmas wedding, consider creating or custom ordering a gingerbread house centerpiece to accent the big day.

The great thing about gingerbread houses is that there are no limitations, leaving you free to create a unique, colorful gingerbread house like the one pictured here. With so many colors and interesting shapes, kids and adults can all enjoy creating a great gingerbread house.
