A beautiful cupcake for Christmas -- or Valentine's Day. The cake has become almost traditional for the upcoming season and now here is an individual-sized serving to highlight a dessert tray. The recipe came from a book of cupcake recipes and decorating ideas. I'm sorry to say I know neither the name of the book nor the author but am grateful to have gotten such a great recipe! Note that the recipe for a suggested frosting is included at the end of the recipe, but any white frosting of your choice may be used. Edited to add: The recipe comes from the book "Hey There, Cupcake!" by Clare Crespo. It contains lots of decorating ideas.
