Christmas is the season of happiness and hope, which is celebrated on a grand note with colorful festivities. Elaborate decorations, toasting wine to each others' health and obviously the sumptuous Christmas feast which is enjoyed by the family truly reflect the jocund spirit of the season. The quintessential Christmas feast is incomplete without the tasty cakes, desserts and many more sweet dishes. Cakes in unique shapes and flavors appear every year and cake baking competitions are often conducted during the Christmas-New Year season. The wine goes really well with a perfect slice of cake, and the Christmas festivities are kicked off at many places by sharing cakes and wine. Wine would be prepared at homes in mud jars. The flavour of the wine and the cake often depend upon the tastes and interests of the family members. The preparations for the Christmas celebrations often begin even before December. Children deck up their homes and hang socks on the door frames hoping that Santa Clause would pay them a visit and drop in some amazing gifts and delicious sweet goodies.
Here is a simple recipe to bake cute vanilla flavoured cup cakes decorated in the shape of Santa's belt.
