Christmas Tree Cupcakes

Welcome to #ChristmasSweetsWeek 2019 co-hosted by Terri from Love and Confections and Christie from A Kitchen Hoor’s Adventures! What better way to celebrate the holidays than with food and fun? 25 bloggers from around the country have come together to share some of their favorite sweet Christmas recipes!! Deck the halls and get ready for very merry sweet treats, like fudge, cookies, Christmas morning breakfasts, layer cakes, cocoa, and more! Follow along on social media with our #ChristmasSweetsWeek hashtag. Happy Holidays!


For Day 2 of @ChristmasSweetsWeek, I made cupcakes from my most read post: Rustic Keto Vanilla Cake.  I topped them with this marshmallow buttercream. What I added new were these darling little Christmas trees. They are simply stick pretzels with green white chocolate coating, melted, and drizzled back and forth like Christmas trees. I do think they add the cutest decoration to the top and they are quick and easy to make.


One trick I learned is this: Start the icing at about halfway up the pretzel stick. That will give you more room to insert the pretzel in the cupcake.  The one on the bottom row, center, works very well!
