Christmas time! When I was making all those Halloweegan treats back in October, I knew for sure that for Christmas I was going to make some classic Rudolph Cupcakes with cherry noses. 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 and no mouth. 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 tinted my coconut with spinach juice, but if you want to use food coloring go for it. I bought a pair of tiny scissors (they're actually mustache 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" label for my posts. If I did, probably 90% of my posts would be tagged "coconut."
We've had our first snow of the season and it has made everything seem even more Christmasy. Not everybody is thrilled with the winter wonderland though...
