Christmas Cupcakes!

Been wondering what I've been up to lately?  Well, one of my most recent days was filled with 12 dozen cupcakes for an order I baked for a Christmas charity event.

The flavors were:

♥Gingerbread  
(gingerbread cupcakes topped with cream cheese frosting and a fondant gingerbread man)
♥Red Velvet  
(red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting and a fondant Christmas tree)
♥Peppermint Brownie (recipe here) 
(brownie cupcakes --I tried not to loathe these-- with a peppermint patty baked into the center and frosted with peppermint buttercream then topped with a fondant candy cane)


The hubbs' favorite?  Gingerbread, of course!!


How do you bake for Christmas?

  1. OH WOW! I think I gained a pound just reading this post. Cupcakes are so my weakness! I love them. I just made a Peppermint bark candy tonight. It is so yummy. I got it from a fellow bloggers site. Nice to meet you by the way:) I think I will become a follower now.

  4. I try to avoid baking whenever possible - unless it's slice and bake (lame, I know!)
