Mmmm. Here’s the cupcake for you to share with Santa by the fireplace: mulled wine cupcakes.
Not familiar with “mulled wine?” It’s wine, simmered with ingredients like cinnamon, allspice and cloves until the air smells as warm and inviting as the holidays. Don’t be timid about experimenting with your wines or your spices. Then trust your nose. (Although sampling might be half the fun of being the chef for this one!)
