Holly Cupcakes


Are you going crazy like me??  Only 6 more days until Christmas and I still have a lot to do!  Of course I am baking a lot more now because of the holiday and will be trying to post everything this week.  I am going to keep the posts short and sweet for us :).

I saw these cupcakes on The Seven Year Cottage blog.  They are so cute and festive!  You use green gum sticks for the holly leaves and a red gumball for the holly berry.  I made chocolate cupcakes and topped them with chocolate buttercream.  I used my new large french tip to frost them.  This is the first time I used this tip and I liked it a lot.  Can't wait to use it again.  Only problem I had with these cupcakes was finding green gum!  I couldn't remember the color of the different types of gum so I tried 3 different kinds and none were that green!!  I ended up using Wrigley's Extra Spearmint which was the gum I liked the best out of the three I tried.  It wasn't the greenest, but it was the best width and color.  These were great cupcakes to bring to my Christmas party.  So festive.  Enjoy!!
