Our family loves traditions! There are many things that we love to do every year, simply because we’ve always enjoyed doing them together. And yet, there are those few things that bring us enjoyment just because we like the surprise of not knowing what to expect… like our Christmas goodies!
Some years we will make sheets & sheets of different kinds of cookies (truth be told… my husband loves to do alot of this!), and some years we will simply make a special dessert.
I thought I would share a “sweet” idea that you may not have thought of for your Christmas gatherings… cupcakes!
This year, at my son’s graduation party, we decided it would be easier to have individual cupcakes – instead of one big cake that had to be cut & served. We were amazed at how well the cupcakes were received! As a matter of fact, by the time everything was said & done, there wasen’t one left!
Then, this fall we went to a friend’s wedding, where the mother of the bride made a beautiful multi-tiered cupcake tower. Not only did the cupcakes taste wonderful, but they were still being talked about weeks after the reception!
I must say… cupcakes are not your everyday – run of the mill little pieces of cake these days 😉 Instead, they are being looked at as very chic little pieces of art… that are also delicious to eat!
I wanted to spark your creative thinking, and thought these beautiful little cupcakes would give you some great ideas to start with.
Please click on each individual cupcake to learn more about it & it’s baker! Now these are my kind of artists 😉

The fist picture is also from her collection.
The simple design and pale colors make these very chic!
I love these Christmas tree cupcakes. The baker made the tops by baking the mix in waffle cones.
You can make beautiful “jackets” for your cupcakes using pretty paper, or paper lace.
And finally… who says Christmas art should only be shared on gingerbread? 🙂
