Christmas is literally just a few days away and another holiday season has flown by in a whirlwind of prep, planning, pinning and baking! While I realize a majority of holiday baking is geared towards cookies (like these vanilla bean sugar cookies) and pies, there is always room for cupcakes on the dessert table, right? How can anyone resist classic flavors like gingerbread, eggnog or snickerdoodle when transformed into perfectly portioned servings of cake? With mile high frosting and decorations that span from cookies to mints to golden sugar, any of these recipes are sure to make your holiday extra merry! So let’s take a look at some of my favorite ideas from my Christmas Pinterest Board. Here’s 10 Christmas Cupcakes to Bake this year!
