Christmas Stollen a la Cupcake!

By on Thursday, December 15th, 2011

Christmas stollen is such a favorite food at the holidays, who can resist the notion of converting it into a cupcake?

Here’s one recipe for Christmas stollen cupakes from The Cupcake Project.

Raisins, dried cranberries, dried currents, dried cherries…we’ll let that negate the bit of pleasure we’ll take from a bit of cherry liqueur and brandy.  And, of course, we’ll only pour those into the recipe, won’t we?

Just in case you have some cherry liqueur left over, here’s a companion recipe for Black Forest Cupcakes.  Well, if I’m on that theme, let’s be sure to have on hand a recipe for White Chocolate Cherry Cupcakes.

Now there’s a cupcake trio that deserves a Ho-Ho-Ho!

D is for Dr Pepper?

What could be a great ingredient for the letter D?  I admit I have been a little stumped!  But in the end it hit me, what else but Dr Pepper?

Down here in Aussie land, Dr Pepper cannot be found in many places… there was once a day when Dr Pepper tried to storm our shores in force, but for some reason cherries and Aussies don’t mix and it quickly disappeared from our supermarket shelves.  You can still get it in some specialty stores, though…

And I think it would be fantastic in a cupcake, like in this one from Cupcakeables!  The cupcake here can be made either from scratch or from packet mix, so whether you are looking for a simple quick fix with a bit of pizazz or want to experiment with a potential future masterpiece you are sure to have fun with these!

Adorable Wool Cupcake Hat

By on Tuesday, June 29th, 2010

I know it’s not the right season for wool, but I found the Cherry Cupcake Hat so adorable that I had to post about it anyway, out of season or not.

ZINSpirational Knits on Etsy offers this cap in 100% merino wool in a variety of colors, in big people and baby sizes too. Now that’s just too cute for words – matching family cupcake hats!  It’d certainly be a distinctive way to keep track of everyone during the next family visit to anywhere large and crowded :)
