I like sweet and simple

Flavours in my cupcakes - vanilla cupcakes, with vanilla buttercream are divine. My lemon curd ones run close, but I always think less is more. I do on occassion do some spectacular creations, but I think simple flavours always work.

So here are some Christmas Cupcakes - yes vanilla - with tinted buttercream, but still vanilla. They are for my smocking group that meets every month at Patches quite a few of the ladies have had a rough year, but they always make it to smocking classes - we chat about life and smocking and have a wonderful time. So this is my thank you to them.

So these cupcakes have let the decorations say *wow* the are simple decorations - simply toppings from Wilton - the little Snowmen on the cream cupcakes with red sanding sugar are from my local cake decorating store - I could make them myself, but I'm running out of time. I'm not totally happy how the sanding sugar went on, but I'll just keep at it till I am.
