Buddy the Elf Spaghetti Christmas Cupcakes

Buddy the Elf Cupcakes

“We elves try to stick to the four main food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corns and syrup.”

On November 7th, 2003, the world was introduced to one of the most lovable Christmas heroes of all time- Buddy the Elf. It’s hard to believe the film is now 13 years old, but, then again, I’ve easily watched it well over 13 times. Buddy’s whimsical world makes it impossible to resist Christmas spirit- all the way from the “seven layers of the candy cane forest”, “through the sea of swirly twirly gum drops”, and finally arriving at the Lincoln Tunnel. The juxtaposition of Buddy’s festive innocence against New Yorkers’ rushed hostility is enough to get viewers laughing, but the visual of 6’3″ Will Ferrell in an elf suit doesn’t hurt either.

Baked Vanilla Donuts

Recently I was given a donut pan, and I was so excited to put it to use! If you don’t have one, they are relatively cheap to purchase (buy one here for $8.99). To start, I decided to just whip up some vanilla donuts, mostly because I wanted to make some brightly colored glaze. I love opening up a donut box that has all different colors and sprinkles! This recipe makes just six donuts, but it can easily be doubled. Plus these donuts are baked, rather than fried. They are still by no means healthy, but it’s definitely better than frying them in oil! Whip these up on a Sunday morning and decorate them with all the rainbow sprinkles you can find!

Homemade Poptarts

My freshman year of high school I ate a package of Pop-Tarts every single morning on my hour long bus ride. Flash forward to present day, I can’t imagine eating those processed snacks even once a week. So I decided to try my hand at homemade versions, still not very healthy but at least a yummy treat with no preservatives! Once you try these you’ll never even want the store-bought breakfasts again, they are so good!

Homemade Circus Cookies

Keeping with these month’s theme, here is the obligatory “Do you remember these?!?!”
But really, do you?? They are so tasty, and addicting, and it’s very easy to eat far too many of them. I have not had them in many years, so I was exciting to do a homemade recreation.
Now, I didn’t have any animal cookie cutters. I could have easily invested in some, they can be found here on Amazon if you are interested in baking up some A+ replicas. As for me, I had a set of tiny cookie cutters of different shapes, and as a poor college student I figured they would more than suffice. The hearts and stars were just as delicious to eat!
