O Christmas Tree
We had a fantastic day with our family today. Our boys got to play with their 7 cousins (on the hubby's side), and had such an amazing time they were more than ready to go to bed tonight!
I made these Christmas tree cupcakes after seeing picture after picture of similar ones on Pinterest. I had plans on making Devil's Food cupcakes (the next challenge for the Club: Baked group), but can you believe it? I ran out of flour! I bake all of the time, and usually pay close attention to my supplies......how did that completely slip by me? I decided to do a white cake box mix, and then made my own frosting. I again used the Perfect Cupcake Frosting from Our Best Bites (it's the only one I ever use anymore). I tinted it Christmas tree green, and using a large 1B tip, made a tower of frosting topped with a star, and covered in sprinkles. I did have trouble with a slightly too warm kitchen causing a couple of my trees to lean to the side. I kept those for me!
I hope that you are all having a wonderful Christmas.......Enjoy!
