Hello December.. & Christmas Cupcakes.. ♥

So yesterday was the first of December! Wee its the last month of the year which of course means it’s almost Christmas! It also means that it is almost time for a whole new year. 2012 is fast approaching, and I have a lot of New Years resolutions to make. But until the dieting and exercising time comes around, I better make the most of December! 
Starting to prepare for Christmas, we’ve brought down all the Christmas stuff from the attic. I found this little gingerbread house I was given last year. Aww cute 🙂 Its real gingerbread!
And here’s our box of Christmas tree decorations. Pink of course! As I am in charge of the Christmas tree. I love these colours!
Here’s my advent calendar. Not a very exciting one but Dairy Milk is the yummyest!
 
Door No.1!
Also this afternoon I baked a small batch of fairy cakes with a festive theme. I used my new Christmassy cupcake wrappers and sprinkles that I bought last weekend.  They came out lovely and golden.
And then I iced them with icing sugar. Looks a bit like snow!

I also kept a few aside to try out something a bit new. I made some mini Victoria Sponge cupcakes. I did this by cutting the top off of the cake, and then filling with vanilla buttercream and strawberry jam, and topping with icing sugar. 

 

 

 

Yum!
