Color Palette #2: Peppermint Snowflake

Another thing I love is baking. I spent a good portion of our winter break baking all sorts of festive treats.

Sean’s favorite Christmas treat is Peppermint Bark which his mom makes for him.  She gave him a big bowl for his birthday on December 10th and then another batch on Christmas.  I’ve never been a huge peppermint fan. I like the occasional candy cane, but I really need to be in the mood for it.  However, I tried a piece (or 3!) of the Peppermint Bark and loved it.  So I decided to try to turn the idea of Peppermint Bark into a cupcake.

Behold, the best chocolate cupcake ever with Peppermint Swiss Meringue Butter Cream.  It was heavenly. And it’s my inspiration for today’s color palette.
