Pink Snowflake Cupcakes

As I’m sure is the case with many of you… this week will be very busy in our house!  Finishing off the gift lists, wrapping, baking, cleaning.. oh yeah, and we have to have something for dinner each night!  I love the Christmas season, and I treasure the special activities, parties, time with family, and delicious food!   This week there was a hitch in my plans, when my main computer (the one I store all my photos on) went haywire.. and is currently in the shop in the “hopes” of being able to recover my photos.  So… my nice organized plan of having a few more delicious treats to share with you was foiled!  But this weekend  I “whipped up” some pretty cupcakes as one last treat to share for the year.  After today I’ll take a little break from posts until New Years and enjoy a little extra family time.

These pretty pink treats were made using my favorite basic recipes…

Chocolate Cupcakes

Vanilla Cream Cheese Frosting

Rolled Sugar Cookies (with royal icing)

For the cookies… simply outline and flood in the desired color, allow to dry fully (6-8 hours).  Then using (outline consistency) white icing, pipe a snowflake design.  Hold the cookie over a paper plate and sprinkle with white sanding sugar.  Dust off excess with a dry paint brush.

Merry Christmas from our family to yours!

“But the angel said to them, Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good news of a great joy which will come to all people.  For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.”

Luke 2:10-11

    Keep up the awesome baking creations! Your blog has been my inspiration to keep baking even if I'm a busy city gal like who probably has the worst apartment oven imaginable! Merry Christmas to you and your family ~from San Francisco!

    Completely stunning…just beautiful. I wanted you to know that I was inspired by your vintage pastel snowflake cookies. Normally I am a "cupcake" gal but I crossed over into royal icing (YIKES) and made them –

    Thanks for the inspiration!

    Your patience and incredible eye for detail continue to amaze and delight me. I'm the kind of gal who slaps frosting on with the back of a butter knife and calls it a day, but I wholly appreciate looking at your images. So, so pretty. (And dang, I bet they're absolutely yum-tastic too!)

    Gorgeous cupcakes and I'm sure they're as delicious as they look. Same thing happened to me a few months ago with my main computer and it could not be fixed, however thank God my husband invested in a 1000 GB external hard disk (very reasonable price) and I backed up all my files including pics, so if you depend on your computer, it's really worth it.
    I wish you and your family a Very Merry Christmas and hope you enjoy the quality time together!

    The cupcakes are so beautiful, and the snowflake, what can I say. Each year I made a promise that the next year I will try to make…and the next, and the next. Looking at your gives the courage to bake and decorate, but I found it so difficult. But I should try, I must try.

    I always have trouble with my frostings not having the right “body” or even going all liquid. That’s why I wanted to try your cream cheese frosting – but I can’t seem to be able to find the page it is on? Did you delete it? The links don’t lead to it..
