I love walking through the stores this time of year because so many stores pair cupcakes and hearts in their Valentine’s decor items. So far I have spotted cuppies in the Valentine’s sections at Walmart, Target, Michael’s, Hobby Lobby, Christmas Tree Shop and Kohl’s. So a big thank you to all the stores who join cupcakes and hearts this holiday season. You make it so much more special for the cupcake obsessed. All Things Cupcake appreciates you!
Christmas might be over, but you don’t have to take down your tree until after the New Year, so it’s not too late to indulge in some of these tasty treats! (Or, you could just file away this idea for next year!) Check out The Stir’s recipe. It involves sugar ice cream cones, lots of green frosting, and candies of your choice for the ornaments. Your kids (and you, too!) will love decorating these!
If your house is anything like mine I’m sure your spending today baking and cooking! We already have three types of cookies made and a fourth cookie dough chilling. I have a feeling we wont have time to make cupcakes but if we were going to I would bake these skinny gingerbread cupcakes with sweet cinnamon glaze by The Scrumptious Pumpkin. Gingerbread and cinnamon are two flavors and smells that remind me of Christmas and these cupcakes are supposed to be healthy! What kind of cupcakes does your family bake for the holidays?
Yes, it’s Merry Christmas Eve, but let’s not forget some people are graduating this time of year! (As if those families weren’t already busy enough!) Here are some celebration graduation cupcakes from Sam’s Cake Factory. Congrats to all those holiday scholars out there!
Every year at this time we receive a lot of amazing cupcake Christmas tree photos from our wonderful fans. Here are our first submissions this year from our Facebook page. I so wish my hubby would let me put up one of these in our house!
Loyal fan, Karen, has not one but two cupcake Christmas trees!
