‘Tis the season…for cupcakes! Sprinkles founder and cupcake guru Candace Nelson shares her favorite holiday traditions and what to pair with these sweet treats…



It’s that time of year when friends get together and bake up a holiday storm, creating sweet treats to be served at parties or given as gifts. Candace can help you kick your kitchen into high-gear by turning one cupcake recipe into three.

“What I like to do during the holidays is make a big batch of just vanilla cupcake batter, divide into different bowls and add different holiday spices,” Candace told genConnect. “So you can add cloves to one, you can orange oil to another, add peppermint extract to another and you’ve got yourself three different fabulous recipes from one base recipe.”

And just what should you drink with your tasty cupcakes? “During the holidays, champagne of course!” Candace recommended. “Or if you’re abstaining from alcohol, just a great cup of coffee or hot chocolate is the way to go.”
