We have a new Christmas cupcake in town! These Easy Christmas Tree Cupcakes have light and moist vanilla cupcakes, topped with easy to make, festive iced Christmas tree’s made from ice-cream cones, buttercream, sprinkles and a dusting of icing sugar for snow.
I wanted to make something that would be a extremely fun bake that everyone with any baking ability could make this time of year. Most of the ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen cupboards too, so…. let’s get baking!
I love Christmas. We usually put up the Christmas tree in mid / late November. Super early, I know, but there’s no harm in getting into the Christmas spirit a little earlier.
My dad head’s up into the loft, drops down the tree to me and my mum, and then we put it up. Well, when I say we, my mum will set up the tree and I’ll help put on the decorations. My patience for putting up the tree just isn’t the best – haha!
As much as I LOVE Christmas tree’s, I noticed, I literally don’t have any Christmas tree recipes on my website. I did just post Christmas Brownies which have one Christmas tree, but I wanted to create a recipe where the tree is the star of the show. These are most definitely it!
Why you need to make these Christmas tree cupcakes:
They’re easy to make
They look incredible
Fun to make
Great for kids to make & decorate
Simple yet effective design
Simply imagine an entire forest of these edible Christmas trees lining your festive dinner table, or surrounding a Gingerbread house. It would look dreamy, like your own little, personalised winter wonderland.
You’ll be surprised at HOW SIMPLE these easy Christmas tree cupcakes actually are to make! You basically just pipe little stars of buttercream all over an ice-cream waffle cone with a piping tip. That’s it. The effect it gives is incredible. Who ever you make these for will be immediately impressed!
Looking for more Christmas recipes? Look no further:
Store these cupcakes in a sealed container. Best tip is to store the cupcakes in a sealed container and decorate with the cone, day of making. This will prevent the cone from getting soggy from the moisture.
Best eaten 2 days of making.
What is aquafaba?
Aquafaba is the water from a can/tin of chickpeas. The chickpea water or brine as it’s called, acts as an amazing egg substitute for cakes, cupcakes and delicious meringue buttercream. You can also get aquafaba in a carton for easy use. Check it out here.
What vegan block butter to use?
My favourite vegan / dairy-free block butters are ‘Naturli Vegan Block’ or Flora Plant Based Block Butter Alternative (salted or unsalted).
