These little penguin cupcakes were so much fun to make. I’m still in baking mode to prep for a New Years party with my neighbors and good friends. I made a double batch of my favorite dairy free frosting recipe to use on sugar cookies too. My cupcakes sort of caved in and I have no idea why. I was distracted with my rescue cat, Archie, eyeing the sprinkles and batter and the two little ones I was watching for a friend. Whatever the reason, the frosting turned out yummy on top of my vanilla cupcakes. I included this easy 4 ingredient frosting below. Happy baking everyone into the New Year! Now on to more paper crafting for my Starry Night Woodland party theme. So excited for 2023!
I just wanted to share with you my all time favorite pancake recipe. Its super easy to make and fun to decorate during winter festivities.
Now that Christmas is over I’m planning one memorable New Years party as well. Its so awesome to make friends with my new neighbors and have so many get-togethers during the holiday season. Having a staycation this year was stress free, travel free, and guilt free with all the goodies that I enjoy baking and cooking.
I hope you all had a wonderful time with family and friends as well! Be sure to check out my pancake recipe. Its so yummy on a cold winter morning.
Happy Holidays Blogging Family!
This weekend I had a blast baking cookies and having friends over to kick off the winter holiday season. It’s so beautiful to see my friends and family celebrate their Jewish and Christian heritage together. We watched Elf and Little Fockers, did some paper crafts, drank chai tea lattes and apple cider (I’ll post the recipes soon), and shared our favorite cookies. Its how the holidays should be!
That being said, I wanted to mix things up a bit and try out some new flours and vegan butters. I am baking and eating eggs now due to a B12 deficiency but feel free to substitute the eggs with your favorite egg substitute. I found Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free 1-to-1 Baking flour as the best substitute for all-purpose flour. My favorite vegan butter by far is Miyokos’ European Style Butter. I hope the tips below help with making wonderful baking memories this year into next.
