I just braved the crowded grocery store in the snow and am now back safely at home to organize my ingredients for tomorrow night's dinner. I'm keeping it semi-simple and am making appetizers for the fam. This way, we aren't too full for our yummy Christmas breakfast the following day and then my mom doesn't have to prepare a whole big dinner two nights in a row. Also, I often like apps more than regular meals - you get to try many different things. I can't wait to eat! :)
How cute are these festive cupcakes from Sprinkles? Such a cute idea for a Christmas party, hostess gift or just a sweet treat for someone you love (or yourself :) ). The ones shown can be purchased for $38 from Sprinkles, but I think they would be fairly easy to re-create if you didn't want to spend the dough (no pun intended). Well, at least the outsides...I don't think I'd be able to master the yummy Sprinkles batter on my own. However, they do sell six flavors of their cupcake mix. One canister is $14 and makes a dozen cupcakes.
