Christmas cupcakes


imageI love Christmas just as much as I love Diwali.

Actually I might just like Christmas a bit more, because of all the presents lol…just kidding.

This year I am in charge of Christmas lunch, it is going to be a full house and even my uncle is popping around in the evening.

In order to get everyone in the Christmas spirit, I am busy baking Christmas treats, at least one treat a day. Combined with the actually planning of Christmas lunch, there just is no time to sit back and have eggnog.

Today, I saw a video on Facebook how they could turn a plain cupcake and a plain ice cream cone, into a delicious funky Christmas treat.


  • 12 x ice cream cones, dipped in melted candy melts.
  • 12 x cupcakes.
  • Plain butter cream icing.
  • Green food colouring.
  • Icing sugar and green glitter for decorations.



  • Melt the candy melts over a pot of boiling water.
  • Add about ¼ x cup milk to the chocolate, to create a smooth paste.
  • Dip each cone, all the way to the top in the candy melt mixture.
  • Shake off the excess and place standing up on a baking tray.
  • Allow the chocolate to set, roughly 30 minutes.
  • Taking some plain butter cream icing, ice the top of the cupcake.
  • Stick a cone ontop of the icing.
  • Then using the left over buttercream icing, add some food colouring to make it a green colour.
  • Using a piping bag, fitted with a 3 star tip, pipe up and down the cone, till the entire cone is covered.


  • Sprinkle icing sugar and green glitter over the cone.
  • Pop into the fridge for 10 minutes to allow the icing to set.

Tell me what you think of this recipe
