Countdown to Christmas Party… Cupcakes!

Sharing is caring!

Are you getting ready for Christmas?

I’ve packed up the fall décor and have pulled out the Christmas goodies… so we’re on our way.

To kick-off the Countdown to Christmas Party I wanted to share with you guys one of my favorite Christmas treats we made last year.

These cupcakes came from a great book that my mom got me a few Christmas’ ago, Hello, Cupcake!  I’ve made a handful of their cupcakes and they have all been adorable.  The book gives great directions and even has cake and frosting recipes.

These are the cute snowmen cupcakes.  The snowman’s body, nose and hat were made of spice drops.  The buttons were red hots, and we used frosting for the scarf, eyes and mouth.

The trees were made with a tootsie roll (chopped into 4 pieces) for the trunk, frosting piped for the tree and a star decor on top.

If you enjoying making cupcakes, then I would REALLY recommend this book.  I’ve never taken a cake decorating class, but their directions and pictures make it easy to follow.

So how are you Counting Down to Christmas?

This is an easy link up party… so no button or link-back is necessary, it just has to be Christmas related!
