Oh, Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Cupcake by ThisIsNotanOwl Oh, Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Cupcake by ThisIsNotanOwl
I've seen a lot of these giant cupcake, Christmas tree spectaculars around on the internet and wanted to make one of my own for an ugly sweater party. I went for a peppermint mocha flavor combination.
The bottom part of the cupcake took an hour and ten minutes to bake. So long... 
For the top part I made a peppermint vanilla cake: tidymom.net/2013/vanilla-peppe…. Delicious, even though I cheated by using a box mix to start. :)
For the bottom I used one of my favorites: Mocha cake. I used the espresso frosting recipe and died it green: www.browneyedbaker.com/2010/08…
Finally, I used Dark chocolate frosting for a middle layer. This stuff is so thick and good. Had to use some milk to thin it out a little for cake purposes: sallysbakingaddiction.com/2013…

Overall, delicious. And a hit at the fun, though small, party. ;)
