Christmas cupcakes

Bake Christmas cupcakes to get everyone into the spirit this year, at home, in the office or at a Christmas party. You'll be very popular, we promise.

Rock a Christmas tree cupcake

For the ultimate Christmas cupcake, look no further than the easy-to-make Christmas tree cupcake, with a towering swirl of green-coloured buttercream and sprinkles for baubles on top of a vanilla cupcake. Try Christmas pudding cupcakes, made with chocolate, cherry and almond and a white chocolate topping - the perfect alternative for those who don't like the real thing. Or be star baker with these pretty twinkling star cupcakes with edible glitter.

Cake angels and co

Nothing says Christmas like Santa, but you can have some fun crafting cupcakes featuring the best Christmas characters. We've got snowmen cupcakes made with a festive spiced cake and a marshmallow and Swiss meringue topping. Santa cupcakes are made with a chocolate cake mix for the chimney and marzipan legs sticking out. Or try these angel cupcakes with an almond base, orange buttercream angel and a fruit pastille for the halo.

Ginger and spice

Baking at Christmas fills the home with that unmistakeable aroma and your family will come rushing when they smell these gingerbread cupcakes in the oven - made with a nutmeg-spiced cupcake and toffee frosting, they are even better to eat. Or get the grown-ups on their merry way with these boozy sultana cupcakes with brandy butter frosting. Just like Marmite, you either love or hate eggnog - we're in the love camp, and think you can't beat these creamy eggnog cupcakes with cinnamon and nutmeg.

Fun festive cake pops

We're cheating with these, but how can you resist that reindeer face?! These are cake pops and we've got three brand new recipes especially for Christmas. First off, see how to make cake pops with our step-by-step photo recipe and then get as creative as you like with the decorations. We love reindeer cake pops with pretzel antlers and Smartie noses, Christmas pudding cake pops with white chocolate topping and present cake pops with pretty red bows.

Phew, that's a lot of cupcakes! Which will you be making this Christmas?
