There's something extra satisfying about getting really messy when you're eating a snack. All the chocolate melting on your hands and the marshmallow squishing out everywhere. Pure decadence.
I see these little mice come through my submissions all the time, but for some reason it only seems appropriate. I don't think I've ever had one or seen them in real life, but something about them just screams Christmas for me. Maraschino cherries just aren't on my radar in the warmer months. I bet I could fit about a half dozen of these guys in my mouth at once, who's up for a challenge?
So much cupcake decorating is based on the notion of piling heaps of stuff on top of the cake, it's refreshing to see someone make use of negative space here, so to speak. A creamy pool of frosting in the middle of the cake is a nice change!
I have a confession to make, guys. I LOVE cherry flavoring. Artificial, natural, actual cherries, maraschino cherries, brandied cherries, cherry Jolly Ranchers, I can't get enough! Also gummy cola bottles are one of my most favorite candies! These cupcakes belong to me, is what I'm saying. They are mine. I wants.
