Christmas time! When I was making all the Halloweegan treats, I knew for sure that for Christmas I was going to make Rudolph Cupcakes with cherry noses. I can't believe it's Rudolph time already! These guys have cherry noses and pretzel antlers. Mr. Fancy Rudolph on the left has coconut milk eyes with melted chocolate chips centers and a little melted chocolate chip mouth. Mr. Lazy Rudolph on the right just has two chocolate chips for eyes. Any basic chocolate butter cream will do for the frosting.
Oh Christmas Tree, oh Christmas Tree... These are the same concept as the Happy Vegan Ghosts. I dyed the coconut with spinach juice, but if you use food coloring go for it. I bought a pair of tiny scissors (they're actually called moustache scissors, but they will only be used for cooking) to make little horizontal cuts all around the trees, so that they look like pine trees. I just noticed that I don't have a "coconut" tag for my posts; if I did, probably 90% of my posts would be tagged "coconut".
We've had our first snow that has made everything seem even more Christmasy. Not everybody is thrilled with the winter wonderland though...
Have a super happy December fellow bloggsters!!
