Whether it is Easter, Christmas, a christening or another religious event, Christians have many celebrations throughout the year. Cupcakes are a fun, festive dessert offering to have at any event and tailoring them for a Christian celebration is easy. Choose a traditional Christian symbol, such as a cross, or decorate your cupcakes specifically for your event or holiday by adding a few simple elements to the tasty cupcake flavour of your choice.

Traditional Christian Symbols

There are several symbols of Christianity that will work well as decorative elements. Purchase decorative cake toppers with crosses, doves or praying hands from a cake decorating site (see Resources). Then frost your cupcakes with the frosting of your choice and add your decorative cupcake picks or figurines. Simply place a topper onto the top of each cupcake to add a traditional Christian element.

For edible decorations, use tubes of coloured icing to create your own crosses on each cupcake or purchase edible sugar decorations, including crosses, Christian fish symbols, bibles and lilies, online (see Resources).


Some common symbols of Easter are eggs, lambs, bunnies and crosses. Cover a frosted cupcake with colourful jelly beans or coat it with green-tinted shredded coconut then place a few jelly beans or small chocolate eggs on top.

Create a bunny or lamb cupcake by covering a frosted cupcake with shredded coconut and using marshmallows and candy to make a bunny's ears and face or a fluffy-looking lamb design.

Purple is the symbolic colour for Lent, so try using purple icing or sprinkles on your cupcakes if you are celebrating Lent in the weeks before Easter.


Christmas is the most widely celebrated Christian holiday and so there are a lot of options for this celebration. The traditional Christian symbols for cupcake decorations include angels, bells, candles, baby Jesus, a manger and a star. Create any of these symbols by freehand decorating your cupcakes with various coloured icing or purchase cake toppers for the more intricate designs.

Another option is to make your own cake toppers out of fondant. Purchase pre-coloured fondant from a craft store or decorating supply store. After rolling out the fondant, use Christmas cookie cutters to create your own edible cupcake toppers.


Christening or baptism cupcake decorations can take on a more personalised style. A special way to honour a child's christening is to create white fondant crosses and use icing to write the child's name on the cross. Place the decorated cross on a frosted cupcake.

Other cupcake ideas for a christening are to use icing to create an angelic baby face or purchase angelic baby cake toppers.

Or make a cross shape out of pure white cupcakes.
