It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Cupcakes

Well, I've been keeping myself busy on these final days leading up to the big holiday. I've been baking, wrapping presents, eating cookies, eating cookies-- um, yes the diet will begin right after New years. I am really determined to perfect my cupcakes and just wanted to share the latest image of my last batch. Thanks to the advice of my good friend Melissa, who is an awesome baker and cake decorator, I finally have the right tools to achieve my aesthetic ambitions. I went to Michael's and purchased a large star tip and a bag so that I could achieve that swirling sweet icing effect. OK- it's still not perfect-- but practice does make perfect-- so there are more cupcakes to come, at least until the new year when I start that diet!
