These cupcakes were so fun to make!
I had a super fun time making them, I actually didnt even get to try them because I had made 12 of them exactly with half of the recipe from the book and 8 went to this "family" dinner party, and 4 stayed at home. When I got home, there were none left! It's all good though. I know that they all enjoyed the cupcakes and the cookies on top!
As you can see, I made other cookies too and decorated them. Trees, stockings. I had made some candy canes, but decorating them was so hard, and so was the snowmen. I have no idea what to do without using like a bajillion colors...that I dont have.
I would like to thank one of my friends, Tiffany, who took these beautiful pictures of the desserts after Secret Santa. I think it was super fun. We also watched Glee! The episode of Glee was so like revealing but good though.
If you noticed, there's on with like the frosting on the bottom of the cookie..and that's cause I was going to try to stand each on the cupcake...that obviously didnt work. They ended up just staying like the way they are you see in the pictures. I also used the brown sugar cream cheese frosting from the applesauce cupcakes because I just had no time to do all of this and try to make frosting as well. I tried to add some powdered sugar to it to stiffen it up, but that didn't work. Oh well!
The camera is my friend Dmitriy's. It's super nice! If you have time, check out his awesome pictures of planes and cars and vacations that he takes with his parents. Anyways, I looked at the previous picture and thought - KOREAN DRAMA. Two guys fighting over one girl! Sorry, finals are draining my brain and so I'm going CRAZYYYYYY!
The recipe for this month's Cupcake Club is found on pages 246 of Martha Stewart's Cupcake book. Thanks to Kayte from Grandma's Kitchen Table for choosing this.
