Holiday Treats, continued...

There must be something about the cold weather that keeps me hibernating inside the bakery making yummy treats..... Now I am the first to admit that I am a sucker for the holidays and embrace every bit of the Christmas season. So far, I have baked my way into the spirit of Christmas, and have added a few new items on TFCS's menu.

In addition to our standard cupcake menu, you can find Gingerbread, Eggnog, White Chocolate- Cranberry, and Mocha Spice Cupcakes during these wintery months. Cinnamon cream cheese frosting pairs equally well with all of our holiday cupcakes =)

In addition to "cake" goods, we've been baking off various cookies, barks, brittles, etc. My favorites include our Sweet N' Salty Chocolate Bark, S'more Bark, Vanilla Peanut Brittle, and Peppermint-Fudge Sandwich Cookies.

And yes, the cake pops are here to STAY! Orders accepted all-year long!

Lastly, a gourmet twist on one of my family's favorite treats. Rice Crisp Petits Fours- iced with rich chocolate ganche and sugar pearls.

What will you be having at your next holiday party? We are still accepting orders at (916) 453- 1981 or

Eggnog Cupcake Deliciousness

As I type up this post, I have the pleasure of smelling freshly baked eggnog cupcakes. Helllloooo December!

These warm, moist cupcakes are gifts in themselves. I am an eggnog fan myself, but I think everyone could enjoy this seasonal treat. Try out this recipe for any holiday gathering- you will not be disappointed!

1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
3 eggs (room temperature)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon rum or cinnamon extract
1 cup eggnog
2 1/4 cups cake flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Sift dry ingredients- set aside.
Cream butter and sugar with an electric mixer (about 3 minutes).
Add extract and eggs, one at a time. Scrape down sides of mixing bowl.
With mixer on low, spoon in dry ingredients- alternating with eggnog. Mix until just combined.

For uniform cupcakes, I like to use a mechanical ice cream scoop or disher to fill my cupcake liners. Fill about 2/3 full.

Baking times may vary. Cook until a wooden toothpick come out clean when poked into center.

After they completely cool, you may ice your delicious cupcakes with just about any icing.

My recommendations:
Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting
Vanilla Italian Meringue Buttercream
Vanilla Glaze

If you want to go the extra mile, try something with a splash of rum!
