Welcome to the last week of The Holiday Cupcake Challenge! We have been celebrating the Holidays all month long with Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s!
In case you are just joining us, let me update you a little…
When I started planning the Holiday Cupcake Challenge, I tried to come up with a different theme each week. And honestly, I wasn’t really thinking that we would be sharing New Year’s Cupcakes before Thanksgiving. So, I apologize!!
If you have a New Year’s Cupcake to share, great! If you still have Christmas Cupcakes you would like to share, I’m opening the Challenge up to include Christmas this week as well!!
Feel free to share your cupcake even if it’s not Christmas or New Year’s for Cupcake Tuesday!
New Year’s Cupcakes with Champagne Buttercream Frosting
Quite awhile ago, we made Jolly Rancher Lollipops, so when I saw the idea in What’s New, Cupcake? book to use cookie cutters to mold hard candy, I thought they would be perfect to celebrate the New Year!!
And since we have a little challenge going on, let me update you…our first week Brenna of Ingredients of a 20something won the Holiday Flavor Challenge with her Egg Nog Cupcakes!! She won the What’s New Cupcake 2011 Calendar! The second week was Thanksgiving, today is the LAST DAY to vote!! And ummm…Brenna is winning again!! That is perfectly fine…just trying to get the competition heated up a little!
