Peppermint candy cane cupcakes

There is no better way to celebrate Christmas than sharing good food. These peppermint cupcakes were the perfect treats for a bunch of hard-working employees at a supermarket who are my little one’s pals. My son looks forward to meeting them, and they always bring a smile to his face.
Christmas was the perfect occasion to show some gratitude and goodwill. These soft and moist cupcakes with whipped cream taste delicious. I tried to make them a little festive with the bicolor frosting.
They are easy to make, and I used a hand whisk and spatula to combine the ingredients.
I used both butter and clarified butter to make these.
I hope this Christmas brightens up your life and fills it with warmth. Cheers to that!!!Merry Christmas.
