Christmas Cupcakes | BLOGMAS DAY 15 & 16

Sooooo I kinda missed a day of Blogmas (super sorry!) but there is a reason why, I made these cupcakes for the Blogmas Day 15 post, but ran out of time to finish them and was planning to finish the decoration section today, but this is my last week of University before Winter Break so it is super hectic! Hence why there are no pictures of the finish product I have added the picture from the recipe website so you can see what they are suppose to look like! 

So this Christmas Cupcake Recipe is from BBCGoodFood. It is the perfect thing to make for the festive season, and they taste delish!!

  • 150g pot fat-free natural yogurt                                           the buns.
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 eggs

  • 85g unsalted butter, softened

To decorate the cupcakes you will need: 
  • Natural green food colouring (for the Christmas trees), sweets, sprinkles and white chocolate stars.
  • Milk and white chocolate buttons and natural colouring icing pens.
To decorate you can also use any thing you think will make them look Chrismassy! 


Method

Firstly you will need to get your cupcake cases, the ones I have are actually from Poundland and have the cutest Christmas theme. This recipe makes 12 so line them on your tray.






Heat oven to 190C/170 fan/gas 5 

Put all the cake ingredients into a bowl and mix with a whisk until smooth. 




Spoon the mix into the cases, bake for 25 mins until golden and risen and a skewer comes out clean. 

Cool on a wire rack.




For the frosting, beat the butter, vanilla extract and icing sugar until pale and creamy and completely combined. 



For decoration, to make snowmen, reindeer and Christmas puddings, first spread the icing over the top of each cake. Then lay the chocolate buttons on top, slicing some buttons into quarters to make ears and hats. Finally, use icing pens for the details. 

For the Christmas tree, colour the icing with green food colouring and pipe onto the cakes using a star-shaped nozzle, decorate with sweets, sprinkles and white chocolate stars.

This is what the finished product should look like...
