December 4th: Bake christmas-y cupcakes!! 

Christmas cupcakes recipe (makes 12)


1 quantity buttermilk cupcakes or red velvet cupcakes (see below)
1 quantity meringue buttercream (see below)
Green food colouring paste
Red food colouring paste

1–2 muffin tins, lined with 12 green paper cupcake cases
Large piping bag, fitted with a star-shaped nozzle
Small piping bag, fitted with a writing nozzle


 Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas mark 4. Divide the cupcake mixture between the cases, filling them two-thirds full. 
 Bake on the middle shelf of the preheated oven for about 20 minutes, or until well risen and a skewer inserted into the middle of the cakes comes out clean. Remove from the oven and leave to cool in the tin for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
 Spoon one-third of the meringue buttercream into a bowl and tint green using the food colouring paste. Put another 2 tablespoons into another, small bowl, and tint red. Leave the remainder untinted. Spread the untinted frosting generously onto each cold cupcake. 
 Take the piping bag with the star-shaped nozzle and fill with the green frosting. Pipe small rosettes in a wreath shape on top of each cake. 
 Fill the piping bag with the writing nozzle with the red frosting and pipe small red berries around the wreath, and a ribbon at the top.

Home Alone 2: Lost in New York (1992)
 "I know I don’t deserve a Christmas, even if I did do a good deed. I don’t want any presents. Instead, I want to take back every mean thing I ever said to my family. Even if they don’t take back the things they said to me. I don’t care. I love all of them… Including Buzz. I know it isn’t possible to see them all. Could I just see my mother? I’ll never want another thing as long as I live if I can just see my mother. I know I won’t see her tonight, but promise me I can see her again. Sometime. Any time. Even if it’s just once and only for a couple minutes. I just need to tell her I’m sorry."
