Just a little Christmas baking inspiration inspired by cupcakes made last year.
My sister and I made the wreaths together for our family. The white chocolate leaves were melted and painted on the back of a clean lemon leaf. We peeled off the dry chocolate and placed on top of devils food cake with homemade peppermint frosting. We added the red M&M's and bows for garnish. The smaller wreath has a lot more detail than the larger one.
The Christmas tree was made for a holiday party I hosted at my apartment 2 years ago. It is actually very simple and can be pulled off as long as you have a cupcake stand that holds 12-24 cupcakes. Green Wilton Chocolate Chips are melted and drizzled onto wax paper in zig-zags and refrigerated. Add green frosting to cupcakes along with red M&M's and white sprinkles and you have a centerpiece-worthy dessert! The topper was made free-hand with melted red chocolate chips.
The white Christmas wreath comes from the Hello, Cupcake! book, and the Christmas tree comes from the sequel What's New, Cupcake?
Hope this gives you some inspiration to bake something wonderful for a upcoming party or family gathering.
