Day 11 of 12 Christmas Countdown: Chocolate Coca-Cola Sundae Cupcakes

Happy Christmas Eve everyone! Hope guys had the chance for your last minute Christmas shopping today before everything closed! Sadly, I did not get a chance to get an early present of an Anastasia Musical Box at the store Things Remembered. Even though I am only 14 years old, I have always wanted an ancient, yet dazzling jewelry box so I could cherish all of my jewelry in. Maybe after Christmas, if the store restocked all of their items, I could get a chance to buy one and probably hand it to my future grandchild when the time comes :) (imagination is overpowering me haha) Anyways, hope everyone will have a great time and Happy Holidays! Follow me on this blog for more blog updates and please leave a comment is desired. Enjoy! :)
