Gluten-free Christmas cupcakes are the Christmas table atmosphere makers! You can also decorate the muffins with gingerbread and Christmas flavours in other ways if you like!

  • Using a food processor or hand mixer, blend the cream cheese, almost melted margarine and paste colouring until smooth (add the paste colouring with a toothpick). Add the icing sugar a tablespoon at a time, mixing well. You can cover the bowl with a kitchen towel, for example, while mixing. The mixture will be quite hard and heavy and should not remain runny. Add more green colour if necessary.
  • Allow the muffins to cool completely before frosting. Place the piping bag in a deep vase or glass and turn the edges outside the glass. Scoop the frosting into the bag and close the filled bag tightly, for example with a bag sealer. Frost the muffins and decorate to look like a Christmas tree.
  • Store in the fridge and warm up before serving to soften the gluten-free Christmas cupcakes.


  1. I made this frosting a couple of years ago and all I remember is that it tasted good. Now I'm thinking of applying the frosting to other muffins, and I can't remember how many muffins I have enough for?

    1. Hi Miia!
      The amount of frosting you need depends on how thick you want the frosting to be. 🙂
      I seem to remember that the frosting is enough for about 10-20 cupcakes. The best way to find out is to experiment. 😉
