Santa hat cupcakes and another attempt at Christmas trees!

I've really been getting my festive bake on!  Last week I showed you my Christmas tree cupcakes recipe.  I decided to have another try and make them a little more tree-like, and I had a bash at some Santa themed cakes too.

I followed the same recipe as in this post, so have a look there if you want to know how to make these.  The Santas are chocolate cupcakes, so you just leave out the vanilla and replace 30g of the flour with cocoa powder.  Also, I used Cadbury's snow bites for the bobble on the Santa hats.  

I'm really pleased with my Christmas trees - there's no mistaking what they are this time.  The Santa cupcakes aren't the neatest - I'm still perfecting my icing skills - but they were fun to make and very tasty.

What's your favourite thing to bake or make to get you feeling Christmassy?
