While I love decorating sugar cookies as much as the next person, I have to admit that they are not my favorite dessert. Not by a long shot. I am just not that big on them.
Cupcakes, however, are a different story. I love cupcakes. And I can't help but wonder... why do sugar cookies get all the glory during the holidays? So I am mixing it up this year.
I just made these cupcakes from scratch, and they were amazing. The holders are much more red than pictured, giving a little boost of holiday cheer. You could even add some festive sprinkles or extra decoration - I am more minimalist/lazy with my frosting.
Here is the recipe. The buttercream frosting was especially amazing.
