Christmas Cupcakes Pinterest Fail

I had to make cupcakes for Phoebe’s third grade Christmas party, so obvs it was time for another PINTEREST FAIL!

You might recall last year’s Valentine’s Day Cyclops Cupcakes.┬áMy Christmas cupcakes aren’t as scary looking as that, but still a big ol’ hilarious fail. Here was my Pinterest inspiration:

Instead of red and green icing, I went for chocolate cake and white peppermint frosting since I didn’t have a vat of food coloring to get saturated colors like the pic above. I figured as long as I stuck to the traditional Christmas color palette, it’d all be good. And it was, last night. I dug ‘em so much, posted this shot on Facebook:

Pretty cute, right? Kids are gonna love ‘em, they were easy-peasy, it’s a total win. Here’s what was waiting for me on the kitchen counter this morning, however:

THANKS, PINTEREST. It’s as good a way as any to sign off for a few days off for the holidays. Have a great week!
