So Big Sister decided she wanted to make them for two different family gatherings we have tomorrow. So off to the store I went to gather the supplies. We started with Paula Deen's sour cream pound cake recipe.
The ingredients are pretty simple butter, sugar, sour cream, all purpose flour, baking soda, eggs, and vanilla. I was very proud of how well she did measuring and following directions. The pound cake is yummy. After the cupcakes cooled, we started the decorating process.
Cutting the tops off of the cones and candy canes was not as hard as I was afraid it would be. I made sure I did this part, no more trips to the hospital this year.
We melted candy melts and rolled the cones in it and then in the sugar.
She used the melted candy to attach the ornaments and the candy canes.
Instead of using fondant to make the gifts we just attaches bows to gum drops.
Didn't she do a great job. And not to be out done Little Sister had to make something. So all the left over peppermint stick tops inspired me to let her make peppermint bark.
The white chocolate and the dark chocolate mixed together and made a swirly mess, not pretty but it sure taste good. I hope everyone has a MERRY CHRISTMAS.
