It's the most wonderful time of the year, full of fun, festivities and feasts! And how better to celebrate the season than with beautiful Christmas tree cakes? These sweet, simple Christmas tree cupcakes are so effective and contain a surprise topping in the centre of the decoration!

Using a plain cupcake base and green Swiss Meringue buttercream for that perfectly smooth finish, this tutorial from our friends at Cake Decorating TV, Sue McMahon provides the perfect Christmas tree decoration design for friends and family of all ages. The basic cupcake base leaves plenty of room for variation if you feel like making your flavours more festive with cinnamon, or perhaps winter berries?
