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!!
