Am I the only one who lives in their kitchen during the holiday season? As soon as December is here, I feel like I’m constantly baking. There’s parties, church events, family gatherings, and lots of baking to do for all my loved ones. One of my favorite things to bake are cupcakes! There are so many clever things you can do with cupcakes and today I wanted to share some Christmas cupcakes ideas that are sure to be loved by all. Enjoy!
