A few weeks ago I made a deal with my husband, I wouldn’t decorate our first Christmas tree until the end of the month. We had made the trek to find a pre-lit one, along with all the decorations, a few weeks ago and arrived home to determine where the best place for it would be.
I managed to convince him to leave it up in our front hallway (because, really, are we really going to get it to fit back in the box?) and promised I wouldn’t touch it – or one single decoration. I’m not going to lie, it’s been difficult passing that tree each day, along with the bags of decorations in the family room, without satisfying my urge to decorate. But I’m proud to say I did it.
And so, now that the Christmas tree decorating restrictions have been lifted and our first tree in our new home sits proudly in the hallway, I can officially say I’m reveling in the Christmas spirit… along with one of my favourite things of the season – food! For those of us who are trying to watch our waistline, there’s nothing better to satisfy a sweet tooth than a cupcake… mini.
And so, I created my Mini Christmas Cupcake Collection. Featuring a red velvet cupcake base (but also available in chocolate and vanilla), each one features its own Christmas theme – Christmas wreaths, snowflakes, Santa’s hats, snowmen, reindeers and mini Christmas trees.
Cute enough to eat, I’m hoping Santa is okay with cupcakes instead of cookies this year. After all, the last place you want to find yourself is on his naughty list!
