To get everyone into the most Christmasy of spirits, I have asked my good friend Helena from Peaches & Cream to guest post on The Fig Tree. And in turn, I am guest posting on her and her sister’s awesome blog (seriously…go check their blog out ASAP). Thank you so much Helena for sharing such a fantastic seasonal recipe. I adore chocolate cupcakes! Mmmm! And you are definitely right when you say that chocolate and peppermint are quintessential Christmas flavours!
And thank you so much for giving me the honour of posting on your blog today. In honour of my grandpa who worked at Eatons (once a famous department store in Canada) for 35 years – I am sharing Eaton’s-Style Gingerbread Men over at Peaches & Cream.
Without further ado – here’s Helena!
Hello! My name is Helena-I am from a little blog called Peaches & Cream! My twin & I love to focus on good food & sharing it with our friends & readers. I find being in the kitchen is where I’m the most relaxed. Photography has become my creative outlet. I used to hate it, but now I love it! This blog has become so meaningful to me over the past 2 years, and I’m so grateful of the people I have met as a result!
Courtney texted me in November and asked if we could get together for a Christmas-themed post. It was a total no-brainer. Of course I said yes!!! I found that I already knew what to make. Chocolate & peppermint are some of the quintessential Christmas flavors. I know there are more, but these are my favorite to work with. These cupcakes are one of THE best cupcakes I’ve made-I love how moist they are. Plus, the frosting is quite light and airy and they complement the cupcakes well. You can add some additional coloring to give it holiday flair; I divided the frosting into 2 parts and colored it accordingly.
I hope everyone is getting excited for the Christmas season! Head over to my blog to see what Courtney made!!
