Winter is here, and I am so excited to start to share our holiday features and today I wanted to share with you these amazing Winter Wonderland Cupcakes. They are super simple to make and totally perfect.

These are totally made from scratch so everything from the cupcake to the frosting is made with perfection. Not to mention they look so delightful and taste out of this world.

One of the things my family loves to do in the winter is to have a little bake-off. We all make something different and this year this will be my go-to recipe and I believe I shall win. HE HE HE.

I will have a printable recipe below but I wanted to show you some steps before you head right for the kitchen, and trust me you will want to make these.

Directions for Cupcakes:

Step 1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, add flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Whisk dry ingredients well.

Step 5: Line a 12-cup muffin pan with baking liners. Using a spoon or ice cream scoop, add batter into the muffin tin about 2/3 full. Bake for 15-17 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool completely before frosting. 

Directions for Frosting:

Step 1:  In a large mixing bowl or stand mixer, cream together butter and cream cheese and beat until light and fluffy. Add in the marshmallow extract.

Step 2: Slowly mix in the powdered sugar, 1 cup at a time, while adding a bit of milk in between each cup.  for 1 minute or until creamy.
