Holiday Themed Cupcakes

I am looking to order some delicious holiday themed cupcakes for a Xmas party with my family. I would prefer an American Buttercream, any suggestions for bakeries you know do something festive (flavour wise and/or decoration)?
Thank you.

  1. my recommendation for cupcakes is always The Sweet Escape in the Distillery

    1. Have you tried Prairie Girl? It's definitely American buttercream and they are always very fresh... beyond that I have mixed feelings. They have seasonal plastic or sugar toppers (at a price) and last December they did an awesome eggnog icing (which made up for the bland vanilla cake), and ginger icing on chocolate which wasn't as good even though I much prefer the chocolate cake. They also do peppermint on chocolate as a standard flavour which could pass for seasonal.

        That's helpful. I do really like prairie girl as well. Thank you!

          I'm really hoping for a return of the eggnog icing next's probably my all-time favourite flavour there, even despite the vanilla cake base.

      2. I can't speak to taste (not a cupcake fan) but I did notice packages of 12 minis at Summerhill Market - and there were multiple Xmas themed toppings. But they looked attractive enough to stop me in my shopping.
        Didn't notice whether they were 'supplied' or baked in-house
