This has been a fantastic year for cupcakes! As sort of a "feel good initiative" I've been donating dessert to a local soup kitchen every Friday leading up to Christmas.
I've always believed in little kind gestures- sometimes the smallest thing can change someone's life for the better so I wanted to dedicate a little time over the holidays to promote that.
I was asked a couple of times why I chose to do it, mainly because it wouldn't exactly grow my business. I gave everyone the same response: it's just something nice to do. I wasn't concerned over the cost or the "potential business" sometimes it's just nice to do something for others.
Below we have all the cupcake designs that made their way into Hope Cottage this holidays season on top of a couple of other creations that passed through my kitchen!
If I did these again I'd go a very different route... These more look like Christmas bears.
Santa Hat cupcakes!
So much red food colouring and they are still a little pink! But the festive feeling is there.
These were for my close friends in my life. These poor souls put up with my terrible work schedule enough, they deserve some sweets!
Winter Wonderland Cupcakes
You really can't go wrong with the classic cupcake, these are in style all winter.
Christmas Tree Cupcakes
My favorite ones this year!
Well there we have it. The collection for the month! Can't wait to see what the rest of the season holds.
