Christmas Tree Cupcakes

December 24, 2009

If you use your imagination the green gob of frosting on the top of this cupcake can look like a Christmas Tree! 

  I used the recipe for  The Perfect Party Cake to make 24 cupcakes.  I adjust the baking time to 22 minutes and I left out the lemon and added an extra teaspoon of vanilla extract.  They were great!

For the frosting I used a Vanilla Buttercream recipe from the More from Magnolia Bakery Cookbook.  I followed the directions to a T and beat the butter, sugar and milk exactly as the recipe stated (it was a lot of beating)  and the frosting was really sugary and didn’t quite come together properly so I’m not going to give you the recipe!   But in the end they came out looking okay and were a hit with the kids!  🙂
