Sunday Sweets: The Cutest Christmas Cupcakes

I'm still occasionally accused of hating on cupcakes, when we should all be in agreement by now that it is only cupcake cakes (aka CCCs) that deserve our white-hot hatred and ridicule.

But cupcakes alone? Nooo problem. In fact, I rather like them. Here, I'll prove it to you: these seasonal sweets make me positively gooey inside.

What I learned today: Cleft lip & palate is the #1 birth defect in developing countries - over 200,00 kids are born with one every year, often leaving them unable to eat or speak. Today's charity, Operation Smile, provides free surgeries to these children. And get this: each surgery only costs $240!
So let's see how many smiles we can bring today, eh?
