Peppermint Brownie Cupcakes with Pink Peppermint Frosting

Doing some xmas shopping...I ran into this can o' the Williams Sonoma. Such great appeal...peppermint brownies. Yum! Of course, I bought the mix!

Here's a photo if you want to buy it...all the ingredients are in the can...except the butter and eggs.

Then, I made peppermint frosting and threw in crushed candy canes! They colored the frosting pink!

Found these little xmas balls at Michaels a while ago...thinking about putting them on my cupcakes. They worked perfectly. I also thought it would be fun to have some frosting on the side to add to the cupcake...after you eat the frosting! A little pot au gla├žage!

Layla got to taste some of the mint frosting!

One of the reasons I haven't been able to blog is because we have been so busy at work. Here's one thing we've been working on:

I'm in here somewhere...can you find the Cupcake Queen? Enjoy...both the cupcakes and the video!

Rock On!
