Christmas Tee cupcakes

all you really do is put it together

Brownie Recipe
Batch of frosting (  like cream cheese frosting)
24 small-medium strawberries
star-shaped sprinkles
Ball candy any kind you like just so they are small for oranments
any kind of shimmery edible dusting

- Bake your brownies in greased mini-muffin tins filled up 3/4 of the way. You’re going to have to shorten the baking time a bit, so just keep your eyes on them as they bake — they’re done when a cake tester comes out clean.
- while  the brownies are baking and cooling, put together your frosting and dye it green.
- Once baked and cooled, secure the strawberries to the brownies with a dab of frosting
- Put frosting in a piping bag fit with a small star tip, and cover the entire strawberry by starting at the strawberry, applying a bit of pressure, and pulling away gently to a nice point.
