Holiday Sugar Rush

I usually stick to cakes and cookies but I was inspired by too much Cupcake Wars!

The santa cuppies were a LOT of fun and had a great wow factor! I've been lurking at Cake Central quite a bit and some of the creations there are amazing, very inspiring! All of the cupcakes were baked using the White Velvet Cake recipe found at Cake Central, basically a heavily doctored cake mix recipe. I used french vanilla creamer/pudding for the flavors. The red velvet was a total experiment as I had no chocolate creamer/pudding on hand, so I used Hershey's cocoa and a vanilla pudding, and made the "creamer" out of hot cocoa mix, LOL. Came out great!

Next post, knitting!
