This easy Polar Bear Cupcakes recipe is the perfect Christmas or festive cake bake. Really fun to make with kids, using white chocolate.
It’s that time of year again… And OH HOW I LOVE IT! Christmas is all of my baking dreams come true, a reason to be decadent and delicious and make ALL of the bakes and cakes.
Would you look at these cupcakes? Seriously, don’t you just want to BITE THEIR LITTLE POLAR BEAR CUPCAKE EARS OFF they are that stinking cute? (Just me?) I’m always short on time at Christmas, but festive baking is one of my favourite parts of the season. These easy Polar Bear Cupcakes are a great compromise as they are super quick to decorate and you can make everything from scratch or cheat, and buy the components ready made and just assemble them.
They are a great rainy day activity with children, but look impressive enough for adults and kids alike. My method and top tips for making them are at the bottom of this post.
