So of course I went through Pinterest and found all kinds of Mint desserts to make.
I decided to make the Andes Mint Cupcake, because his mom and dad always give him a box of Andes candy for Christmas each year.
It was not that much work......for someone who makes as many mistakes as I do in the baking process.
I had to buy a cake decorating kit for the frosting and peppermint extract, buttermilk and heavy cream for the first time. The rest of the ingredients I was already familiar with.......
My family liked the cupcakes..........but I think the boys didn't care for the cream cheese frosting. Next time I will leave the cream cheese out and just make it a buttercream frosting.
