Vanilla Vanilla Cupcakes with Snowmen

I've been so busy on a project at work that I've hardly had time to think about cupcakes! However, I was in Whole Foods last week and found the cutest cupcakes and decided that I would try to make one that looked just liked them...And, they came out perfectly. What great therapy!

I used Billy's Vanilla Vanilla cupcake and frosting recipes. It took some time to get the frosting to the right has to be pretty airy.

The project I've been working on is for the Univeristy of Maryland. Every year my office produces the president's holiday e-card. This year our group came up with a pretty funny idea that meant we had to go out and photograph all over the place! You'll see what I mean when you check it out on's the link to the end result of our project: Click here!

And, what would cupcakes be without Layla...she loves the cupcake! More cupcakes this weekend!

Rock On!

    The scene is beautiful. I like the little snowmen, the delicate fluffy layers and the christmas ornaments in the background. Indeed, it is expertly prepared and photographed.

    Would you mind sharing what tip you used to get that type of piping? It looks great?

  8. I enjoyed the video so very much! My son is a freshman at UMd, and I emailed it to him (even though he's home for holiday break, he'll see his computer before he sees me today!).
