Happy Holiday Cupcakes

Happy Winter Solstice!

I'm lucky to have a beautiful view of the North Shore mountains from my apartment, whose snowy peaks and white ski runs help remind me that it's officially winter today.  But aside from the mountains, it's Vancouver weather as usual.  Some rain.  Some sun.  Lots of moderate cold.

These cupcakes, with festive fondant candy canes and snowmen, help remind me that Christmas and snow is just around the corner. (Well, maybe not the snow).

Do not worry -- I'll post a tutorial of how to make the fondant candy canes and snowmen in the next day or two.  I created these quite late at night, in poor lighting, and a little (a lot) unsure of how they'd turn out, so I'll take some time to make comprehensive instructions.

I hope you all are having a wonderful holiday season!
