Christmas Cupcakes can really bring your Christmas treats to life. Wouldn’t it be awesome if you could present a tray of treats like this.

If you practise, you can create wonderful cupcakes like these.

 

Christmas Cupcakes by Verusca

This is the Mr and Mrs Claus collection from Verusca Walker.

These are Vanilla Cupcakes decorated with fondant.

Verusca is a Brazilian artist who has been living in Australia for the past 12 years.

She has worked with cake decoration for the past 3 years, after finishing Fine Artist and Baker studies.

Verusca decided to mix her love of both industries, art and baking, and make edible art.

You can see more of Verusca’s work here: Gallery.

I think you will agree, her work is too good to eat.

How could you destroy such masterpieces?

 

Biting Off More Than You Can Chew

Now, I may have exaggerated earlier when I said “If you practise…”. I’m pretty sure that I could practise until the cows come home, and I still wouldn’t be able to make anything that looks as good as that.




 

But it would be fun to try.

And no matter how lame they look, I’m sure mine will taste just as good.

And, besides, my family is used to eating my culinary disasters.

For now I’m going to live with the dream that, if I practise, I can make something as good as these cupcakes…. before I shatter the dream by actually trying.

 

Looking For More Help?

I found a couple of cake decorating books on Amazon that might be helpful to you.

I’m yet to try it out (still afraid of failure), but I have bought the Wilton book (above) and it looks fantastic. At that price, what have I got to lose, right? Imagine how great I am going to be at this. Now all I have to do is find a book called “Stop Being Afraid. Just Get Off Your Butt And Do It!”

 

What Do You Think?

Do you like these cupcakes? Are they too good to eat?

    Thank you for a fantastic blog post. This is just what I have been looking for. I want to make something with wow for my family and friends this Christmas. I have done some cake decorating before, but nothing like this. They look so cute. I have ordered the book you recommended – Decorating Basics. Wish me luck. If they look half as good as the ones in the photo above, I will be pleased. Looking forward to Christmas! -Lee.

      Good luck Lee! If you’re brave enough, send me a photo of your Christmas cupcakes. I’d love to see what you create. Cheers, Sandra.
