Christmas cupcakes and cookies

Merry Christmas and season's greetings! It's that time of the year again! Lots of good food, cakes, cookies, and my greatest excuse to bake away! Christmas cupcakes and cookies for my kids school parties and hubby's work potluck.

Cookies and cakes recipes are here! This is my most favorite time of the year! Even as a child, it was so much fun. Though we are Hindus, we celebrated Christmas, we decked the Christmas tree, hung up stockings on the chimney, sang Christmas carols, made cakes and cookies, and also got gifts! Which child does not love gifts? 
This year is no different, only that I am physically and geographically far far away from my mom, dad and sisters. I try to bring the same spirit of the holidays into my home. Baking starts days ahead, and I absolutely love it!
