Hot Chocolate Cupcakes
If you're hosting a party in the winter, consider making cupcakes that look like cups of hot chocolate. You'll need chocolate cupcakes, white frosting with marshmallow crème and candy canes. After all your cupcakes have baked and cooled, top them with a few dollops of white frosting so they look like melting marshmallows in a cup of hot chocolate. Sprinkle the tops with cocoa powder. To make handles on your "cups," cut the curved tops off your candy canes and stick them into the side of the cake with the rounded side sticking out. Voilà! You have a tasty dessert that's guaranteed to warm up your party.
