I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and got to relax a little in-between all the hustle and bustle that seems to go along with this time of year! I had the opportunity to make some cupcakes for Christmas gatherings, which I will post over the next couple weeks. My goal for 2012 is to post at least one new recipe a week - that seems pretty do-able, don't you think?! :)
The first of the Christmas cupcakes is the Peppermint Mocha Cupcake which I found the recipe for on Baker's Royale website, which you can find HERE. The cupcake recipe was easy and delicious. I did not make the frosting as stated in the recipe, I made a basic butter cream to which I added peppermint extract and crushed candy canes. I added a candy cane on top and added a little "North Pole" to make it a little festive. :) Enjoy!
