Hoosier Homemade for the Holidays!

By on Monday, December 5th, 2011

Glitter, glitter, and more glitter!  I just want these holidays to shine so that I can sing “Silver & Gold” along with Burl Ives when spinning the Rudolph soundtrack.

What’s more perfect to go with those silver and gold ornaments than cupcakes decorated as ornaments?

These ornament cupcakes come from Hoosier country, Indiana!  “Hoosier Homemade” had several holiday cupcake decorating ideas from a multi-week cupcake challenge.

Find other inspiration in actual vintage Christmas ornaments.  The 1950s ornaments were the very essence of elegance in design and can still be found at antique co-ops and flea markets and also on etsy and e-bay.

Happy New Year

A massive happy new year to you all!  Have a fantastic time, and catch you in 2011 for more cupcakes!

These wonderful new years cupcakes are some of the best that I have seen, I love all the bright colors that Anita Jamal has used!

After all my Christmas baking I’m giving cupcakes a miss over New Years, instead I am happy to let someone else do the cooking and just kick my heels up!
