25 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS
A Charlie Brown Christmas (1965)
 
And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, ‘Fear not: for behold, I bring unto you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the City of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.’ And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host, praising God, and saying, 'Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.”

December 4th: Bake christmas-y cupcakes!! 

Christmas cupcakes recipe (makes 12)

Ingredients

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

Equipment
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


Method

 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.
