Christmas Baking Part 1

So we know we've been really bad bloggers! We had set an easy once a week posting schedule and we just got busy/lazy during the holiday season. hahahaha But we're back for good now! We know that the holidays have been over for a few weeks now, but for the next few weeks, you're all finally going to see what we've been up to! 

Our first round of holiday baking posts were inspired by Bakerella's snow globe cupcakes, but of course we did things just a little different. We did everything the same except we made our own fondant using this marshmallow fondant recipe and we topped the cupcakes with chocolate sugar cookie disks so we'd have a stable base. I'll share my cookie recipe on next week's post! 

So now it's on to all the snow globes! 

All the cupcakes without their snow globe tops.

We made the presents with the same chocolate cookie recipe as the disks and just used royal icing to decorate.

Another Christmas penguin! hahaha I made this one and he just looks like he's a tad slow!
