Tinsel and Twirl

I have the cutest holiday decorations to share with you guys today. And they’re all sugary sweet. I’m talking cupcake and gingerbread nutcrackers, gumdrop garland, elves with popsicles, ice cream cones, gum ball glass and yes … cake pop ornaments, too.

They are all from my friend, Cupcake Julie’s holiday shop… Tinsel and Twirl. And it’s all crazy cute. If you remember this sugar-coated Candyland Christmas post complete with her handmade house-sized nutcrackers or even this Sweet Soldiers post from previous years at Julie’s holiday house, then you know exactly what I’m talking about. So many of you wanted to know where you could find her amazing dessert-themed decorations. Well, I’m happy to say, she’s curated some of her favorites over at Tinsel & Twirl to help add a little sweetness to your own holiday collection.

Take a peek below at just some of the decorations in her online shop.

I just had one of those Andes mint cookies, where you unwrap the Andes mint, cover it with cookie dough and bake – drizzle w/ chocolate when cooled…when you bite into the cookie there’s this surprise mint – oh, they were delightful!

I LOVE the gingerbread man cake pop! 6 days before Christmas in 2000 I lost a cousin who was like my little brother to an incurable heart disease no one has ever had in the entire world. His nickname was Cookie Boy because he smelled like homemade chocolate chip cookies when he was born. We remember him in our family with gingerbread men.

I love these ornaments. I am definitely going back to this site and get some ornaments for next year. I love the bon bon candy garland and the gingerbread people. My favorite ornament might be the Frosted Gumball Pink Cupcake Tree Ornament. Ask me again in five minutes and I might change my mind–these are adorable ornaments.
