A great Christmas dessert for the holiday season are cupcakes! Cupcakes are a great choice if you don’t want to make a full blown cake and if you want something more individually sized. They’re also a great choice if you can’t decide what flavor you want! Another great thing about cupcakes is that you can make the “cake” part just vanilla flavored and then dress up the icing and topping with any type of Christmas Flavoring to instantly bring them into the season!
To get you started in the right direction, here are a few great Christmas flavors to think about trying when you make your cupcakes this holiday season:
2. Grand Marnier (this is a special adult flavor!)
3. Pumpkin spice
4. Gingerbread (including cinnamon and nutmeg)
5. Rum (this is another flavor specially reserved for adults!)
6. Red Velvet (although this can be eaten at any time of year, the flavor and the red coloring make it an especially nice choice for the holiday season).
7. Eggnog (you can find a bunch of easy recipes that use eggnog and rum to make a delicious cupcake!)
8. Pecan Pie
10. Candy Cane
11. Mint Chocolate Chip
12. Marshmellow (give a great snow-covered effect to cupcakes!)
