Peppermint Mocha Cupcakes

So I stumbled upon this recipe last Christmas, but didn't have time to try it out - finally did this year and BOY was I happy I finally did! :) Peppermint-studded mocha cupcakes with peppermint swiss meringue buttercream, drizzled with dark chocolate sauce and sprinkled with crushed peppermint! Can you say "refreshing"? I've included a link to Bakers Royale's wonderful recipe - please try it - you won't be sorry!!

Painted Snowman Cake

After coming across one of last year's Christmas cards with a lovely folk art style snowman on it, I was inspired to attempt a little recreation via painting on a fondant covered cake :)
