Christmas Eggnog Poinsettia Cupcakes

Hubby brought these to work as a Christmas gift to his co-workers.
Delicious eggnog cupcake topped with royal icing poinsettias I made for a holiday touch.
 
Great non-alchohol recipe, eggnog and pudding center - yum!
 
Merry Christmas

Cookie Swap Santas


 
Our second annual office cookie swap was a big success today.  It's so nice to have all these different cookies and not have to bake them. 
 
My thanks go out to Kim, Carrie, Erin, Sheila B, Jeff, Karin, Deb, Molly and Steve for making this day possible as well as being the most wonderful, compassionate people to work with. 
 
I love you all.

Yummy Fall

 
These are soooo good!  Cranberry and orange, what could be better for fall.  
Added a little orange flavor glaze that put them over the top.

Forever Pixie

I thought I would take a minute and explain why my blog and baking endeavor is called Pixie's Treats.  Pixie's is a tribute to a wonderful man whom I miss terribly.
 
Since the day I was born my Uncle Donald, whom I considered my second dad, called me Pixie.  I have no idea where this actually came from but right up until he passed away last year that was his name for me. 

Pixie and Uncle Donald 1965
My Uncle Donald was a kind and loving brother, husband, uncle and gentleman with a heart of gold.  He was a wannabe computer geek who would call me all the time for help figuring out what he might have done to his computer.  My heart aches for one more of these phone calls.

There is definitely a big piece missing in our family.

Miss you.
Love,
Pixie
