I ran into these mini reindeer cupcakes the other day at an outdoor market in Usaquen, Colombia, and I totally fell in love. Not only were they adorable, the combo of sweet and salty was delicious. You should totally make these mini reindeer cupcakes for Christmas, or to bring to your next holiday party!

Here’s what you’ll need:

* Cupcake mix (these were vanilla)
* Frosting (the frosting was a really light and airy chocolate)
* Chocolate sprinkles
* Mini pretzels
* Candy eyeballs
* Red candy beads

As my one friend said when she saw them on the ‘ol Instagram account… “Spotted: My next Pinterest fail.” But I have faith in all y’all. I think you can make these pretty damn easily!

Welcome to Treats and Geeks — the little food geek dream I had while high on Valium, post-dentist visit.

What started as an Instagram account to show off all the amazing food I eat with my even-more-amazing boyfriend, turned into this website. Here I’ll go past “ooh, look at what I just ate” to “ooh, let’s dork out about what I just ate, what I want to eat, this awesome book, that awesome website, and even food-themed toys and fashion.” I’m telling you, it’s gonna get geeky up in this bitch!

Because the thing about me is… I’m an old-school geek, and a new-school foodie. And these are my adventures.
