It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…it really looks a lot, and I mean a lot like Christmas. I can’t believe it is not even December yet, and everywhere you look there are decorations, Christmas trees, Christmas lights switched on already, goodies. The town is so ready for the big celebration. And I haven’t even started my shopping yet…

But, I have already started thinking  about my Christmas food menu. These cupcakes are definitely going to be on the list, no doubt about that. I just love coconut, it gives such an amazing flavour to these already delicious cupcakes. Not to mention the chocolate chips, I mean, it’s chocolate, we know it’s divine.

If you have kids, then this is a recipe to get them to help you. They will love to get their little hands messy, and I am sure they will be more than pleased with the final result. Not only cute, but fun to eat too. Same with Gingerbread men, these are so christmassy. Oh, you really have to listen to Christmas songs while baking the snowman cupcakes, just to add some extra magic. Don’t you just love Christmas?

With two little girls, l know for sure Christmas will be fun for us. Kids do change everything. don’t they? It’s priceless seeing the joy on their faces when they open the Christmas presents, or play around the Christmas tree. Looking back, l had the best childhood myself, with lots of snow at Christmas, kids singing carols, decorating the house, mum baking and cooking.

Really magical moments that  l will treasure forever. I wish y girls can have the same happy memories and always look forward to Christmas the way l did and still do. And baking it’s certainly a good start, you get into that festive atmosphere and become excited about the big day. Bring on, Christmas, we are so ready for it!!!
