Caga Tió Cupcakes

Cute chocolate Christmas cupcakes…but make them Catalan. ♡

These fun Caga Tió cupcakes celebrate the famous “pooping” log that brings children presents each Christmas here in Catalonia, Spain.

Caga Tio Cupcakes

Christmas cupcakes…but make them Catalan. ♡

This December marks our fifth holiday season living here in Barcelona…and Teo’s very first! We had such a fun time this past weekend taking him to the central Christmas market, buying his first tree, adding to our nativity set, and watching his eyes light up seeing all of the twinkly lights around the city. But of course, it wouldn’t be the Christmas season here without one of the best and quirkiest Catalan traditions that we absolutely love…the arrival of Caga Tió, the famous Catalan pooping log.

If you’ve never heard of Caga Tió, Barclay and I actually recorded a video learning about the tradition when we first moved here (see below). But in a nutshell, kiddos across Catalonia spend the month of December feeding their Caga Tió oranges and food scraps each day, while trying to be on their best behavior under his watch all month long. Then on Christmas Day, the kids all gather to sing a song and (yes) whack Tió repeatedly with a stick. Then if they were good and their Tió is nice and full…he “poops” out presents for everyone.

It’s a centuries-old tradition that everyone here still has so much fun celebrating. (As our friends say, is it really that much weirder than a dude from the North Pole sliding down your chimney?) So this weekend, we had a great time finally introducing our Teo to our Tió. And together, we started feeding him early so that he’ll be ready to do some excellent pooping this Christmas. Then I got a little carried away…and made cupcakes to celebrate.

So for anyone here in Catalonia or around the world who wants to celebrate Caga Tió in an extra sweet way this year, here’s a quick tutorial for how to make these cupcakes!

Christmas Tree Cupcakes

Usually, I kick off the holiday season by baking dozens and dozens of my favorite Christmas cookies. But this year, I randomly decided to dust off my set of piping tips and decorate a few rounds of Christmas cupcakes instead.

And it’s been surprisingly fun! ♡

I used to be really into cake decorating in my early twenties, and had forgotten how much I enjoy getting lost for a few hours on a Saturday afternoon in the world of frostings, food colorings, piping tips and sprinkles galore. It’s been a fun creative hobby to pick back up this holiday season…with some very merry and delicious cupcakes to enjoy as a result!

So for any of you who might interested, I thought I’d share a few batches of my favorite Christmas-themed cupcakes that I’ve made lately. These simple Christmas tree and Christmas wreath designs in particular are very beginner-friendly, if you’re new to the world of working with piping tips, and relatively quick and simple to make. Or if you happen to be interested in an even more basic option, I’ve also provided instructions below for how to make similar designs using just a ziplock bag and a butter knife. I’ve included my favorite vanilla cupcake and a simple vanilla buttercream recipe below, but feel free to use whatever homemade cupcake and frosting recipe sounds best to you here. (Or hey, if you want to save a step and go with a box mix, no shame here.)

Let’s bake some Christmas cupcakes!

I am all about keeping things simple at this time of year.

Instead of cooking at home, we’re ordering pizza and wings for pre-trick-or-treat dinner and I’m whipping up these super simple semi-homemade Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes for dessert. I just plan on topping them with one of those little pumpkin candies you can find near the candy corn to make them a little more festive.

You all know I love my doctored cake mix recipes, and I couldn’t resist giving it a seasonal twist.

The result is these pumpkin spice cupcakes that are so irresistibly moist you can’t stop at just one!

If you love pumpkin bundt cake, you’ll definitely fall for the combo of spice cake mix and pumpkin. The lightly spiced cream cheese frosting makes the cupcakes so special.

Miniature Chocolate Cupcakes

They are mini in size, so you’ll want to have a 24-cup miniature baking pan handy. 

Dipping Mini Cupcakes

After the cupcakes are baked and cooled, start decorating by covering the cupcake tops.

Not with butterceam, but with melted candy coating for a smoother canvas to aid in making the spiders later on. Don’t worry, I’ll show you.

What better way to celebrate the day than with a giant pumpkin cupcake? I’m here for it.

Okay, so here’s the deal. Over the last few years, tons of you have made my pumpkin sheet cake into cupcakes. Tons of you have asked about it, have tried it, have made amazing versions. 

I wanted to have a space here on the blog for the cupcakes only – just so you could see them, in case you want cupcakes over sheet cake

I know. Hard decisions. Cupcakes or sheet cake? Hmmm…

pumpkin dream cupcakes

I love both for different reasons and it just depends on my mood, what I’m making said cake for, who wants the cupcakes, etc. 

The best news is that you can turn the recipe into cupcakes and just like the title states, they are a DREAM.

A dream.

SO fluffy and flavorful, with a tender crumb. Absolutely delicious.

P.S. If you’ve made the pumpkin dream cake before, then you know that I don’t love my pumpkin overly spiced. Because of that, there is a minimal amount of spice in this recipe. Enough to taste it, but they aren’t overly spiced. If you love pumpkin spice, I advise adding more!

The cupcakes themselves are so wonderful that they really don’t even need frosting. I mean, I’m not a huge frosting person, so that may be why I can say that. 

Unless it’s cream cheese frosting, which I would like to eat with a spoon. From a very large bowl.

I usually make a cinnamon cream cheese frosting for the sheet cake version, so I changed things up here. Using my espresso cream cheese frosting from my banana sheet cake was the best idea ever. So yes, these cupcakes are basically a mash up of those two delicious cake recipes that we all love so much.

Oh yes. It’s coffee cream cheese frosting. Tangy and rich and decadent with a hint of coffee in the best way possible. I use instant espresso powder and it works perfectly. In fact, I keep it on hand for this frosting alone. (more…)
