Christmas Cupcake Recipes

Festive cupcake recipes for Christmas time

Christmas cupcakes are always welcome after everyone’s had a chance to let their dinner go down - or as a centrepiece at your Christmas party. We’ve selected our pick of the best festive cupcakes which combine wintery, Christmassy flavours with fluffy sponge and smooth, sweet icing.

If you’ve got little ones who want to join in the baking fun, why not let them help out, and ice your cupcakes? Our buttercream icing is quick and easy to make, and simple to pipe onto your cupcake creations. Try our salted chocolate buttercream for an ultra-festive twist on traditional buttercream icing, and top with a chunk of chocolate of your choice. Why not pop your favourite Quality Street on top for a super festive flavour?

Top tip - freeze your cupcakes if you’re able to make them ahead of time to free up your kitchen, and minimise mess.
