Homes and food served are decorated innovatively following the ‘Christmas’ theme with colour like red, green, white, etc.
Decorating desserts for Christmas can be very exciting, but you ought to know creative ways of doing it. Here are a few tips on how you can decorate a simple cupcake for Christmas.
- DO YOU WANT TO BUILD A CUPCAKE?

These should have the green frosting to give the green look of the tree. On the top most, you can add a star shaped chocolate with sprinklers. Decorate this with sprinkles and candies. M&M’s can act as decorative balls. This way, you can create a perfect Christmas cupcake-tree.
You can create a snow theme with cupcakes and marshmallows for Christmas dessert. Arrange marshmallows on a tray or platter as snow. In the centre, place three cupcakes stacked one top of the other, with white frosting as a snowman. You can decorate it by using sprinklers of snow-flakes and tiny candies to complete the snowman’s look. You can place toothpicks nearby so one can pick their marshmallows carefully without spoiling your anything else.
- CONE IS THE TREE

Place a cupcake upside down cover just the base rim with white frosting, and the rest of red frosting.

You can pierce it in with the help of a toothpick.
