Everyone has their special Christmas traditions. We do lots of baking at Christmas time, even washing off the dusty rolling pin to make cut-out sugar cookies.
With the cupcake craze, we decided to add a new tradition: Christmas cupcakes!
Cupcakes are so easy to make, easy to decorate, and easy to serve.
We like to make decorating the cupcakes festive, so we use tubes of frosting to try all kinds of fancy touches and then use sprinkles or colored sugar. You can also go simple with the frosting and make little faces or designs on the cupcake tops with candies.
Start with 1-2 dozen baked cupcakes in paper liners.
Pass out one cupcake per child. Give them frosting and decorations.
When they are finished with one cupcake, they can make another one.
Finished cupcakes go on another platter.
Christmas cupcakes make a lovely addition to any Christmas buffet, a special dessert after Sunday dinner, or a festive treat at a Birthday Party for Jesus.
Christmas is a great time to have fun together decorating, making gifts, wrapping presents, and baking. In the midst of all our Christmas busyness, we want to remember the Reason for the Season: Jesus. Keeping our eyes on Him in our family time, learning, and church activities makes Christmas meaningful for the whole family.
Please receive our gift to you this Christmas: FREE Curtis Family Christmas Time Devotions. You can download them here. We have been using these devotions since the children were little and still enjoy them each year.
In addition, we have more Christmas resources to add joy and fun to your Christmas festivities. In our house, we have a special Christmas Eve tradition. You can learn more in Celebrate Christmas with a Traveling Dinner. Or enjoy our Celebrate Christmas with Cookies Cookbook.
