Last night the second Cupcake Club took place! There were cakes, prizes and good company. The tube strike kept a few people away but we didn’t let that stop us.

This is my second offering for Cupcake Club tomorrow. I’ve been waiting for Thanksgiving to be over so I could use my new mini gingerbread man cookie cutter. I think anything in mini size is automatically cute!

Chocolate Mulled Wine Cupcakes
-
I wanted to make two Christmas flavor cupcakes for cupcake club. Mulled wine is pretty much as Christmas as it gets. The spices in the wine are very subtle but you can really taste the red wine in the chocolate. It would be a good idea to add a few teaspoons to the ganache as well (I unfortunately ran out).

If you want a chance to taste these make sure to come to Cupcake Club tomorrow (Monday November 29).

Mini Pumpkin Pie

I made these using the little bit of leftover pumpkin pie filling that I had since I couldn’t bear to throw it away! You could also make several of these instead of one large pie. I wish I’d had a little bit of whipped cream. They would have looked really cute with a drop in the middle.

Pumpkin Pie with Crunchy Pecan Topping

I love Thanksgiving and it’s such a bummer that I have to go to work each year. I would love to stay home and cook all day! Maybe I can stay home on our newly minted bank holiday, April 29th, and bake cupcakes in honor of the royal wedding.
