Switzerland has some of the most charming Christmas Markets - Basel, Bern and Zurich. This picture is of Zurich's Christkindlimarkt; which is in a railway station & is Europe's largest indoor Christmas market. The enormous tree is truly spectacular.
Dark chocolate cupcakes with peppermint Swiss meringue buttercream. "These smell so wonderful and taste like a classic winter mint chocolate." I use the chocolate cake recipe from this for pretty much everything.
