Christmas Eve Box hamper by Juniper Cakery




Happy December, everyone! It’s almost here! Today the spotlight is on our cute as can be Christmas Eve boxes! Yes, boxes… plural. We launched last month with one, but it has been so popular (we sold out twice, but we have since re-stocked) that we put together a sweet LIMITED EDITION North Pole themed hamper. We like to think that all our treats are great for both kids and big kids (aka adults), but our North Pole version would be utterly adorable for children to enjoy on Christmas Eve.

Easy Christmas Cupcake Decorating Idea!

You’ll need…
Cupcake(s)
Green buttercream
Number 4 piping tip by Wilton
Piping bag
Rainbow confetti sprinkles

Tangled lights cupcake tutorial by Juniper Cakery

1: Fill your piping bag with the green tinted buttercream. Make sure that you’ve fitted the bag with your piping tip.

To add the tip just put it in the bag with the piping end right at the bottom. Then snip the end of the bag. Your nozzle should poke through, but not fully!

Note: You can pipe the ‘string’ with just a snipped end of a piping bag and leave out the tip. However, a lot of bags come with a seam which can make your piping look a little off. Keep this in mind if you’re going to omit the piping nozzle!

2: Now pipe a constant ‘string’ of buttercream on top of your cupcake. It should really start to look like spaghetti. How easy!

Tip! You can definitely use this tutorial to decorate a cake too! Add piles of tangled lights on top of a buttercream cake. Why not even add a Christmas tree next to your lights?

3: Finally, grab your rainbow confetti sprinkles and add to your buttercream ‘string’. You can lightly sprinkle them on or add one by one.

You can even use mini chocolate beans or Smarties instead of rainbow confetti sprinkles as ‘lights’. This is pretty cool if you want bigger ‘lights’ and more colour!

Tip! They’d need to be a little spaced out or else they will just look like sprinkles dumped on top. You can also use a pair of food safe tweezers to add each sprinkle on individually.

Tip! If you want to make impressive cookies using this tutorial then simply use a stiff consistency dark green royal icing instead of buttercream. If your royal icing is too wet or soft it will begin to merge or meet leaving you with a pool of icing.

You should be left with some pretty cool holiday cupcakes! Why not change the colour of your sprinkles to match your own decorations. You can even experiment with different candy pieces instead of using rainbow confetti!

There are so many cool ideas you can try if you want to turn this tutorial up a notch! Why not create a cute fondant reindeer character. Swap the buttercream or royal icing for long rolled out fondant ‘ropes’. Wind the fondant ‘ropes’ around your reindeer’s antters then attach rainbow sprinkles or mini chocolate beans using edible glue or a tiny amount of melted chocolate.

Christmas Baking Essentials

Christmas baking essentials by Juniper Cakery



Time for some Christmas baking tool recommendations. We always try make the products on these posts easy and accessible for everyone to use. This time we’ve really thought about making things pain free for all. Especially after the year this has been. Whipping up sweet treats should always be enjoyable. So with that in mind have a look at some of the essentials and ideas we’ve gathered!

Christmas baking essentials

Good quality mixing bowl

This is possibly not the most exciting item on the list, but it’s definitely a Christmas baking essential. We also picked a lovely light pink (we have the grey) version which will brighten up any kitchen. The bowls by Mason Cash are sturdy, huge and they always have amazing designs too.

Star cookie cutters

These star cookie cutters by Wilton are some our favourites. This set also comes with multiple sizes. Perfect for tiny stars to add to cupcakes or huge stars full of decoration! They’re also pretty useful when Christmas isn’t around. We use these cutters to cut fondant stars for unicorn cakes, princess cupcakes or graduation cookies.

Fun snowflake impression rolling pin

Decorating Christmas cookies is going to be insanely easy with this rolling pin. If you’re a beginner or you just don’t like royal icing there’s no need for plain biscuits! Roll out your cookies as normal then before cutting shapes give it a quick roll with this pin. A pretty snowflake pattern should be left in your dough. Perfect for instantly impressive treats.

Mini bundt baking pan

Bundt pans are perfect for anyone in a rush or not experienced with cake. They come in some incredible show-stopping styles! Just grease up the pan then pour your go-to batter in and bake. Wouldn’t these make the prettiest little favours at your festive dinner? You can also bag them up. Add a seasonal bow and nestle into stockings.

Festive silicone mould

We love this mould! It’s festive but it’s also modern in design. You can add melted chocolate into each and leave to set for cute chocolate treats. Bag them up as gifts or add them on top of fresh iced cupcakes. You can even experiment and make holiday gummy sweets with this mould too.

Candy canes

Candy canes are fabulously versatile! Though, It may seem like we added these on there as a mid-baking snack. You can add them on top of cupcakes. Lay onto peppermint brownies before baking. Crush them and add them to cookie dough. They’re also great for making quick hot chocolate dippers (dip the end in melted chocolate and push into a giant marshmallow… voila!).
