Cupcake disaster!

Thank you so much for stopping by. Doug and I are finishing up the last of our gift baking. When I saw these I thought, how cute! Aren't they just precious? At midnight we were trying to make them. We laughed so hard and were just silly trying to make them work. First we could not find any red food coloring. So I decided that Mrs. Claus washed Santa's suit in Clorox. The black 'belt' is licorice. Could not find any thin licorice. Doug tried his hand at piping gel. I did not read the directions properly and Santa's feet are way too big.

Oh and please notice the snow on two chimneys the snow is melting up! LOL. The fur on Santa's boots is sorta melting also.
We are delivering them anyway. I think everyone needs a laugh during the holidays don't you?

I found some really cute ideas on a blog called Homemaking Fun.
Click on the link and you will find some great ideas. And one last little gift. I found these peppermint shot glasses at Target for $1.00. They were in the dollar section in the front of the store. I think with a small bottle of peppermint scnapps they will make some great warm you to the toes gift.
Now to fight the crowds and finish our grocery shopping! We have not even finished our menu so it will fun. Doug and I are baking our Christmas desserts tomorrow. You know I will post them, no matter what they look like! Merry Christmas.
I love Comments...........

  4. Jeanette,

  5. Happy Holidays to you and yours. I love your Santas. Who cares if he has big feet I know great people with big feet.

  6. Oh my goodness! What a cute idea... I can only image a plate of them at a party! They would be the talk of the party for years to come! Merry Christmas, Caroline

  10. So imaginative!!! Cute cupcakes! Bleach!!! brings back memories of being a newlywed!!!

  11. I think you get an A for effort! Cupcakes can be so challenging, as I am finding out the hard way. I think yours turned out cute, and I'm so jealous you found the peppermint shot glasses!

    Anyway, thank you for all of your sweet comments. Some day I would love to meet you in person. Unfortunately, since you are in Georgia and I am in Utah, I'm not sure how easily our paths will cross.

    Happy new year!


  12. Your cupcakes are so adorable!!! I never got to baking until yesterday and our cookies spread and spread and spread. But they were still good to eat!
