If you live in the Northeast of the US (or any region this winter!), then I'm sure you can easily relate to this cupcake. I found the idea on one of my new favorite blogs - The Daily Mixer and I just had to make them! Of course I ordered everything needed to decorate the cupcakes from www.layercake.com... Do you think that was the intention when they posted the idea on their blog? :) Same with the Rockabilly cupcakes I made for a coworker's birthday. I purchased a kit that contained various decor - nonpareils, cupcake toppers and papers. I decided I'd just sprinkle the cupcakes with nonpareils and top each with one of the various toppers included in the kit. They're very kitschy, which I love!
Oh, by the way - The cupcake is a gingerbread cupcake which is topped with a lemon cream cheese frosting. Uh-may-zing!
