Hi Bold Bakers!

During the Holiday Season there are so many parties and outings to attend. Now you can stand out this year with my Cupcake Christmas Wreath. This Holiday Party Dessert will blow away your friends and family. What is it? It’s simply a whole mess of cupcakes, buttercream frosting and some creativity.

Bake 2 batches of your favorite cupcakes. I made vanilla so I would have a clean, white canvas for my wreath. For the buttercream I made a double recipe of my Best-Ever Buttercream Frosting because there are a lot of cupcakes to decorate. Next decide what you want to add on top: sprinkles, ribbons, buttercream decorations, etc. Then simply go nuts and use your skills to create this beautiful Cupcake Christmas Wreath.

If you are looking for help in the kitchen, this dessert is perfect for little hands to assist. Cupcakes and frosting are very kid friendly ingredients. Best of all, any little frosting mishaps can be fixed, or just be part of the wreath’s charm. No matter what, you will be the talk of your Holiday party with this simple, yet impressive dessert.

I only needed a few holiday baking essentials to make this recipe. The piping nozzles I used are from the Cake Boss Decorating Tools 12-Piece Basic Decorating Tip Set. It’s a small set with every nozzle you will need for baking. I need a sturdy piping bag so I use Wilton 12 inch Disposable Decorating Bag. And course you can’t make this dessert without cupcakes. I baked mine in a Bakers Secret Cupcake Tin for the perfect batch.

I created this recipe and a special video for The Inspired Home website. It’s a place where I go to find out what new products are coming out along with tips and fantastic recipes. The Inspired Home’s mission is to inspire, inform and encourage you to make your house into a home, lead a balanced and healthy lifestyle and to create moments to celebrate and connect with your friends and family.

Share your Christmas Cupcake Wreaths with me on my social media. I can’t wait to see what you create.
