Christmas Eve is easily one of the most delicious evenings in the entire year. As the whole family is gathered together to celebrate, most of the bonding happens over food. Sometimes it’s hard to find a dish that would make every family member happy, especially when it comes to dessert. Kids love one thing and adults another, but it’s safe to say that cupcakes are usually the common ground. Roll up your sleeves and put on your baking hat – it’s time to make Christmas cupcakes!
