Christmas Tree Cupcakes
Serve this snowy dessert this holiday season. Cupcakes are shaped like trees, covered with snowy frosting, and sprinkled with sanding sugar. Save some sugar to create beds of "snow" for serving. If you like, you can also make mini gingerbread stars to decorate the tops of the trees.
There will be leftover batter. To bake, line standard muffin tins with paper liners and bake at 325 degrees for 15 to 18 minutes, until a skewer inserted into center of cake comes out clean. Cakes can be wrapped in plastic and stored at room temperature for up to 3 days before assembling.
