Sweets are one of the best ways to bring holiday cheer to your Christmas table. And when it comes to a treat, cupcakes are never a bad idea especially when they are super cute and creative. So, here are some ideas you might want to try for making your cupcakes memorable:
1. Marshmallow Snowman Cupcakes
Whip up a batch of cupcakes in the flavour of your choice and then pipe out buttercream frosting over them. Make snowmen heads with marshmallows and detail their faces with edible markers. Make their arms with pretzels and buttons with mini chocolate chips.
2. Mickey Mouse Santa Hat Cupcakes
This idea has double cuteness as it combines two ideas together. By using red and white buttercream frosting you can make santa hats over cupcakes and then turn them into mickey mouse santa hats with mini oreos.
3. Pretzel Christmas Tree Cupcakes
Treat your guests with these cupcakes that everyone will surely remember for many days. Just add green food coloring to white chocolate chips and microwave them for 30 seconds.

Frost cupcakes and coat them in dessicated coconut and use the trees as cupcake toppers.
