Hope you all had a fun and safe holiday! I was able to leave work early on New Years Eve and then I have today off- yippee!! Jon and I are always a little stumped on what to do on holidays when there are only 2 of us. Sadly, most of our good friends have either moved away or are out of state for the holiday break. We even looked outside last night and our complex was seriously deserted! I think we and one other apartment were home and that's it! That's okay though :-) We had a lot of fun.
This year for Christmas, Jon got me a really awesome book on Cupcakes. There are a lot of tips, recipes and different ideas on how to animate your cupcakes instead of just plain old frost them. We decided that we would make some cupcakes from the book. They were awesome! They are snowmen cupcakes with trees. I won't go into much details about what we did- just know that it took a long time and that I waited too long to frost the trees (oops). This resulted in frosting that was TOO soft but I didn't want to wait to have it stiffen up in the fridge so we just did the trees anyways. You know you love them! Also, the faces on the snowmen were supposed to be mini chocolate chips... but I couldn't justify buying a whole bag just to use them on 3 faces- so we just iced them on- so they don't look very "clean".
Now the problem is that we took so long to make them that we don't want to eat them!
Anyone want a snowman?
