Hi everyone! It is definitely getting down to the wire for Christmas, huh? I hope you had a good weekend despite all the hustle and bustle that seems to be going on! Work this weekend was crazy! I’ve been doing a lot of baking lately (’tis the season–to get back to the gym eeek!) Anyway, I’m completely obsessed with angel food cupcakes. I particularly like them because I don’t have to feel so guilty eating them. There is just something so nice about the spongy cake and a light frosting that totally makes my day. There is always a tiny bit of amount of almond in angel food– I thought why not replace that with peppermint and do a light chocolate frosting on top! Don’t worry- this change did not disappoint! They were so yummy and I hope you get a chance to try them out!! Here is the recipe:
2 cups heaving whipping cream
7 tablespoons sugar
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
Beat the sugar, vanilla, cocoa powder, and cream to soft peaks in your mixer. After the cupcakes have cooled, using your favorite tip frost the cupcakes. To make these a little more festive I added the adorable sugar snowflakes and a patterned liner outside of the the red liner.
