These were my New Years Eve cupcakes last year when my in-laws were spending their holidays with us in the UK.
I was just too busy to post it at the time being, so here I am doing it right now. Better later than never, they say 🙂
These were tiramisu cupcakes with Rum, so just perfect for a New Years Eve party! I might just make them again this year.
Remember my White Chocolate Christmas Cookies? I made those and these at the same time, but kept in an airtight container they stayed just as good and tender as freshly made cookies.
My favourites are the clocks. And the “Keep Calm And….” cookies 🙂
- 2 ¼ cup all purpose flour
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- ¼ tsp. salt
- ½ cup butter, softened
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 6 oz. white chocolate
I covered all of them with white fondant, then painted on with edible powder coloring and edible pen.
There is a cookie with Keep Calm and Take a Mustache, and we actually had few mustaches, the kids loved to wear them as a party accessory. They looked funny 😀
I was so looking forward to this!!!
I bought the box of chocolates with the tiny bottles of alcohol at the Post Office. Yeah, you heard me right: Post Office 🙂 I was waiting in the ques to send a letter sometime in November when I noticed these chocolates on the shelf.
To make these I baked a batch of Vanilla Cupcakes (recipe from Laura Vitale’s Kitchen). When they have cooled completely I cored them a little and sprinkled with Rum. Well, I bet you figured by now that these were NOT made for the children at the New Years Eve Party 🙂
The cream frosting I used was a thick, double Champagne Cream ready made from the store, I just whipped it up. And to finish the cupcakes I topped each one with a little chocolate bottle, each containing a different kind of alcohol in it. I also sprinkled shiny glitter to make it even more festive.
My work still in progress here 🙂
