For one of our Thanksgiving desserts this year, I made these cupcakes, with special picks to celebrate the fact that my daughter is dancing in the Nutcracker. I found the kit with these darling Nutcracker picks at Williams-Sonoma. Aren't they fab? The ballerinas even have tulle added to their skirts!
For the cupcakes, I wanted to make something "salted" because lately I've been obsessed with salted dark chocolate. So I made spice cupcakes (from a mix -- easy, peasy), and then made the icing from scratch: a salted caramel buttercream. I wasn't using a recipe, so I was kinda flying by the seat of my pants. But I thought they were super-yummy, and there were no complaints at the dinner table.
I'm sorry to say that I didn't take any other pictures at Thanksgiving! I was too busy cooking, and then cleaning, and then giving in to my turkey coma.... I hope that you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
