Counting Down Until Christmas

It’s almost Christmas! I know the kids are cheering.  But my blog readers can, too, because this year, I’m again participating in Martin Crosbie’s 12 Blogs of Christmas. In the event, 12 authors blog about a Christmas-themed topic. Each day, participating authors share the first few paragraphs of a blog and link to the full article on the originating author’s site. It’s a lot of fun and you get a lot of cool holiday posts.

I thought I’d give you a heads up before the posts start tomorrow. In addition to heads up, I’m sharing a super awesome holiday recipe I found online. It’s what’s pictured in the photo: Snow Globe cupcakes. Some of you may be aware that I have a cupcake addiction. This time of year is always hard, with all the baking going on. Thankfully, it’s Christmas cookies that get the most play. But, it’s recipes like this one that make me fall off the bandwagon. Kudos to the site Sugar Hero for creating such an awesome holiday treat, even if it means I’ll be giving into my addiction. THUD! (Yes, that was the sound of me falling off the wagon.)

And one last thing. Life First will have a holiday 99 cent sale starting next week (12/15).

Merry Christmas!

      Yes, the cupcakes are gorgeous. Though, after looking at the recipe, I decided the globes were a little too much work. It involves molding gelatin around a balloon, and popping the balloon once the gelatin sets, and doing a handstand while praying that the mold doesn’t break as you remove the balloon. OK I made up that last part, but I fear the time involved is too much to alot this year. Maybe next year, though.
