52 Cupcakes – #18 Chocolate Peppermint Cupcakes

Welcome friends! It’s time for cupcake #18 and it’s another fabulous creation that is sure to get you into a festive mood for this holiday season. Chocolate + Peppermint= One Happy Jenny!



Normally I try to post my latest cupcake discovery on Wednesdays but my dog ate my homework. Literally. I had made these amazing cupcakes but realized I was out of decorating bags for my icing. So I ran to ABC Cake Decorating (swoon) and when I came home, Hank, my 115 pound golden lab, had inhaled 18 of the 24 cupcakes. That normally wouldn’t be a problem, but they were for Ben’s 10th birthday party that was 90 minutes away when I got home. I made another batch and Ben had a great party, but in my haste, I forgot to take pictures. So a third batch was made. Is there such thing as cupcake drama?

This cupcake was created by Christina over at Sweet Pea’s Kitchen. The recipe was easy to follow and most importantly, a hit at the birthday party with the kids and parents. My cupcakes sank a little bit after baking, but that never bothers me when that happens, because I frosted them. No one could ever tell. (more…)

Glimpses of gratitude

I challenge you to do one thing today. Take some pictures of your family and/or of your surroundings. Or better yet, download the million pictures you have sitting on your digital camera right now. I guarantee you no matter what is going on in your life, you will feel grateful for something.

Here are just some glimpses of what I am feeling grateful for right now…
