Another Pinterest find that I knew I needed to make this holiday season:
Those look easy enough, right? Just a little piping on top of a cupcake with some candy added. Well let me tell you how freaking hard it is to find those little green jelly candies! I went to Target and Hannafords with no luck. Finally found some green jelly trees at CVS last night, so I cut those in half to make leaves. I used red M&M’s as the berries since I still had some leftover from my reindeer cookies. However, the M&M’s started to melt and left red coloring on top of the pretty white frosting. UGH! Next time I’ll be using gumballs or some kind of other red candy.
Here’s my version – I did a red velvet cupcake (cake mix + a Chobani vanilla yogurt + 1 1/3 cups water + 2 egg whites) and then a light cream cheese frosting:
Before the M&M’s started bleeding….
Whatever, at least they tasted good!
