Christmas Tree Cupcakes with Fluffy Cinnamon Frosting

Hi guys!

What a mouth full, isn’t it? :p
The full title actually is: Vanilla Christmas Tree Cupcakes with fluffy Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting.
Try saying that five times in a row!

I know Christmas is already behind us, sadly. But I still wanted to share my Christmas Trees with you!
This frosting is the fluffiest, most delicious and subtle frosting I’ve ever had or made!
It’s got this subtle taste of cinnamon in it which makes it perfect for all ages! And even for people who aren’t such Cinnamon fans πŸ˜‰

I know my piping techniques require some more practice but I do think my trees DID look a bit like trees πŸ˜€
The cupcakes are my Vanilla Cupcakes.

Let’s make that nice and fluffy frosting!
What do we need (to frost at least 20 cupcakes):

  • 400 ml cream
  • 500 g cream cheese (I always use mascarpone)
  • 125 g powder sugar
  • 3 dashes of cinnamon
  • piping bag + tip

How to:

Whip up the cream and set aside in the fridge.
Whip up the cream cheese and the powder sugar.
Add the whipped cream to the cream cheese. Add the dashes of cinnamon and blend it all in.
Fill your piping bag and FROST!

Let’s move on to the making of our Christmas Trees!

What do we need:

  • 100 g chocolate (you can pick your favourite colour)
  • piping bag
  • silver (or any other colour) sugar balls
  • baking paper
  • plate

How to:

Melt the chocolate in the microwave or au bain marie. If you use the microwave, use sessions of 30 seconds and stir everytime before starting another session.

Fill your piping bag with the melted chocolate. Cut off the tip of the bag.
Put some baking paper on your plate.
Take your piping bag and start making starshaped figures on the baking paper.
Put the plate in the fridge for ten minutes. (sometimes it may need a bit longer, depending on how hot your chocolate was)

Take your frosted cupcakes and the sugar balls.
Try to put the balls on them like in a real Christmas Tree πŸ˜€

If your chocolate stars are cooled and hard, you can put them on top of the Christmas Tree Cupcakes!
Don’t they look adorable!

Enjoy them!

Have a delicious day ❀

  1. These are so cute! And look so yummy! The frosting would be perfect for me to make for friends and family, I love cinnamon perhaps a little too much so sometimes I go a bit overboard – this one might be subtle enough for those who don’t love cinnamon quite as enthusiastically as me haha
