Click on over to cupcakesgarden.com for the beautiful and fun pictures of these fun treats!

Mini Sparkling Cider Cupcakes
1½ c. cake flour
1 c. sugar
½ c. (1 stick) butter, room temperature
2 eggs
½ c. buttermilk
¼ c. sparkling cider
1¾ tsp. baking powder
¼ tsp. salt
¾ tsp. vanilla extract
¼ tsp. vanilla bean paste
For the sparkling vanilla frosting:
3-4 c. powdered sugar
1 c. (2 sticks) butter, room temperature
2 tbsp. whole milk
3 tbsp. sparking cider
Pinch of salt
1 tbsp. vanilla extract
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line three miniature muffin or cupcake tins with liners. Set aside.
2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat together sugar and butter until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add vanilla extract and vanilla bean paste. Add eggs one at a time, mixing after each addition. 
3. In a medium size mixing bowl, whisk together cake flour, baking powder and salt. With mixing speed on low, alternate between adding wet ingredients (buttermilk and cider) and dry ingredients. Mix until just combined.
4. Scoop batter into prepared pans, filling each ⅔ of the way full. Place in oven and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until they become lightly golden brown on top. Remove from the oven and allow to cool in pans for 2-3 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. 
5. While cupcakes are cooling, to prepare the frosting, in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, beat together butter for 1 minute until smooth. Add vanilla extract and salt. Gradually add powdered sugar, a half cup at a time, with mixing speed on low, add milk and sparking cider. Beat on medium-high speed for 2-3 minutes until frosting is light and fluffy (it should be relatively stiff). Add more powdered sugar if needed.
NOTE: This recipe can make standard size cupcakes, just adjust the baking time to 18-20 minutes.

'Envelope on the Hour' Tradition:

I  have seen some pictures of count down bags (clocks with each hour leading up to midnight) and thought an even simpler idea would be some fun colored enveloped with different times hand written on them. In each there could be anything...treat, stickers, activity...whatever! And since my kids all under 5...for those who also have very little kids--I am going to start our envelopes earlier and countdown early using the different Netflix shows countdowns!

Image result for envelopes

something like this...

DIY Confetti---1pm
Surprise Treat & noise maker craft---4pm
Firework cookies(for after dinner!)---5pm
Special dinner or special new years treat after dinner (fire work cookies and milk)--6pm
Resolution making time/sparklers---7pm
Net Flix countdown/noise makers--8pm

These are great for new years or 4TH of July!...Really any celebration worth having fireworks ;)

Found these over at http://nurturestore.co.uk/

My kids will love this and whats really great about these too is that it doesn't have to be at all perfect, and you can use sugar cookie dough, gingerbread cookie dough...something you can roll flat.

Its neat to have all these options to choose from. 6 different ones!

Do you have any New Years Traditions??

I hope your New Year's is Awesome!
Pin It!
