While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.
It's the most wonderful time of the year - December 15 is National Cupcake Day!
If you're Christmas cookie-d out and weary of holiday decorating, treat yourself to a cupcake tree, with gobs and gobs of creamy frosting on top. Now, that's our kind of tree trimming!
Nothing says the holidays like baking up a batch of cupcakes and sprinkling them with seasonal sprinkles and sugar. Crumble candy canes on top of your peppermint cupcakes or make them into snowman sculptures - you can be even more creative here than you can with cookies!
Less intimidating than baking a giant cake and more satisfying than a smaller scale treat, these individual works of edible art take the cake in the baking world.
So kick off your shoes, shake out that cheesy Christmas sweater and chow down on some caramel-mocha (and sea salt) cupcakes. They're pretty much the opposite of finding a lump of coal in your stocking.
I love cupcakes too!
That engine you just heard revving was the Food Network churning up more inane cupcake compet!tion shows. Lovely.
