We all love a cupcake don't we? Cute little bitesize bombs of flavour and sweetness that you can get seriously creative with, to the point that it has become an art.

Here at Bored Panda we are getting into the holiday spirit by sharing our favourite Christmas themed cupcakes. Seriously, some of these are so amazingly detailed and clever that even I would think twice before gobbling them up! Scroll down below and try to protect your keyboard from the inevitable salivation. Oh and don't forget to vote for your favourite!

I would have 'painted' the snowflakes silver, or put a lot of edible glitter on it before adding it to the cupcake. Still nice though!
