Cupcake Elves are fun and easy to make. They are sure to put a smile on anyone’s face before and after they are eaten.
This cupcake recipe is adapted from Cupcake Project’s “The Ultimate Vanilla Cupcake.”
1. Spray cones with edible food dye. Let dry.
2. Preheat oven to 350ºF. For the cupcakes, in a mixer, mix together sugar, flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Then add the butter and mix till crumbly.
3. In a medium size bowl whisk together eggs, sour cream, oil and vanilla extract until smooth. Slowly pour egg mixture into the crumbly flour mixture.
4. Once well combined, gradually add the milk. The batter will be liquid, similar to pancake batter. Line 24 cupcake spots in a cupcake pan and fill 2/3 full with batter. Bake for 14 minutes, check with a toothpick. If not done, check every minute after that. Cupcakes should not brown.
5. When done, remove liners and let cool completely. Then take your icing and place in a piping bag. Pipe a small circle on the top of the cupcake to hold the cone in place. Next pipe more frosting to create fluff around the bottom of the cone and a little on the tip of the cone. Adhere the cashews to the sides of the cupcake by pushing them into the frosting. Then create a face with the gel and a Red Hot candy for the nose.
Epiphany is celebrated on January 6, and commemorates the Magi’s visit to the Christ Child. Growing up, our church would celebrate with Epiphany Cakes, which were filled with trinkets signifying different things. A fun way to celebrate the twelve day of Christmas with your kids! (Note: Be careful with small objects; make sure kids know they’re in the cake.)
These would be the perfect cookies to make with kids on Christmas eve to set out for Santa! Not only are they cute and fun, but they’re absolutely delicious. A soft and chewy sugar cookie base with cream cheese frosting, white chocolate, chocolate chips, marshmallows and sprinkles!
The main thing to remember about peppernuts is that they are tiny, about a third to a half inch, no larger. Peppernuts are a tradition in many German families. They came to our area with the Mennonite immigration in the 1870′s. Imagine generations of people grabbing a handful or two of peppernuts and munching away and you have a tradition worth continuing.
