Winter Cupcake Flavors

I thought it was time to come up with some fun new flavors for the Christmas Season. Of course we had to have a chance to sample so hopefully you were able to make it to my ornament party or the Holiday Open House a couple of weeks ago to sample these new favorites!

I saw these adorable little cuppies in an article and had to try them out for myself. It is just a cupcake (any flavor) with buttercream frosting mounded on the top and then smoothed out. Then, while the frosting is still fresh, sprinkle it with sugar crystals. It looks like a giant snowball. Then I made sugar cookies using miniature cutters, decorated them with royal icing and stuck one on top of each "snowball"! Such a festive little cuppie is sure to bring joy to all of your holiday gatherings!

The cute little cuppies in the front are Hot Chocolate Flavored! It's just like home made hot chocolate (you know the kind that Grandma used to make) but in a cupcake!

These yummy little things are Peppermint Flavored! I couldn't decide which flavor cupcake so I tried it out 3 ways :) We had chocolate cupcake with Peppermint buttercream, Vanilla cupcake with Peppermint Buttercream, and a Peppermint Cupcake with Peppermint Buttercream. The most popular seemed to be the chocolate cupcake with peppermint buttercream!
