Cupcake Friday: Melting Snowmen Gingerbread Cupcakes – Erica’s Sweet Tooth
It was 25°F when I woke up this morning. Since we’re only a little more than a week away from Christmas, I feel like 25°F means there should be snow. Of course, an hour later it was up to 35°F, and the high for today is supposed to be 55°F, so it sure doesn’t look like snow is on the horizon.
In honor of this unfortunate and confused weather, today’s Cupcake Friday is Melting Snowman Gingerbread Cupcakes from Erica’s Sweet Tooth, yet another foodie blog that I follow. Coincidentally, Erica adapted this recipe from a cookbook I happen to have at home as well – Hello, Cupcake – which I highly recommend for inspirational cupcake ideas that take far too much time but are totally worth it in the shock and awe department when you present your masterpieces.
These little fellers look just how our weather feels – they start off frozen and happy, snowy and cold the way they should be on December 14th on a 25°F morning, and then over the course of the morning they begin to soften, slouch, slip back into a watery puddle that goes sploosh when you tromp in it. Except that these particular snowmen are made of frosting, so when they melt, they taste delicious.
Go ahead and check them out – I know I’m going to! Thanks, Erica! And happy Friday, everyone.
