For some reason I think they look like bears… or cats… or moose.
Hopefully the red nose will tip people off to the fact that these are supposed to be little Rudolph cupcakes!
You see it, right?
Ryan and I made these cupcakes this evening for him to take to his work’s holiday potluck luncheon tomorrow.
We first baked up a batch of marble cupcakes and then topped them with chocolate frosting.
The reindeers’ facial features are composed of the following:
- Antlers: Mini pretzel twists
- Iris of the eyes: Green M&Ms and beige Almond Joy Pieces
- Pupil of the eye: Black icing
- Face: Vanilla wafer cookies
- Nose: Red M&Ms
I’m not gonna lie, we both felt like it was almost wrong to eat one. Biting off Rudolph’s face seems somewhat anti-Christmas, but it didn’t stop us from each grabbing one after dinner.
And speaking of dinner, it was a good one! I ate one too many licks of icing as we were decorating the reindeer cupcakes, so a simple, produce-packed salad sounded perfect.
In the mix:
- Goat cheese
- Pomegranate dressing
I also chugged a ton of water. I cannot seem to quench my thirst today!
Off to spend quality time with my little family and possibly hang out on the foam roller. My back feels very tight today and I’m hoping some foam rolling will work wonders.
