Christmas cupcakes

Christmas is the time of good food and eating way too much.

I always love Christmas time. This year even more because i have decided to do some Christmas baking and i’m sharing the recipe with you all.
This would be a great idea for when you’re cooking your Christmas meal and you’re wanting a sweet treat while you wait.
I ended up making 3 different cupcakes. Mince meat, marbled and plain.
This recipe makes 6 large cupcakes and 10 small cupcakes.

RECIPE

Ingredients


110g of margarine 

110g of butter
220g of sugar
4 eggs
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla essence 
220g of self raising flour
1-2 tablespoon of milk


1: Cream together the butter, margarine and sugar.

2: Add vanilla essence.

3: Beat the eggs and gently add to the mix.

4: Finally add the flour and beat together well.

5: Add milk if the mixture is too stiff.

6: Separate your mixture into 4 bowls.

7: In the first bowl add some mince meat and mix well.

8: In the second bowl add some red food dye. DO NOT MIX THE MIXTURE! Take a skewer or the end of a spoon and gently swirl it around the cake mixture to make a marbled effect.

9: In the third bowl add some green food dye. DO NOT MIX THE MIXTURE! Take a skewer or the end of a spoon and gently swirl it around the cake mixture to make a marbled effect. 

10: In the fourth bowl you don’t need to do anything as we’re keeping that cupcake mixture plain.

11: Spoon all the mixtures into different cupcake cases.

12: Put in the oven. Gas mark 180 for 15-20 minutes.

13: Once baked, take out of the oven and allow to cool.

14: It’s time to make some icing, you can make any icing you like.

15: Once you’ve made your icing, separate your icing into 3 bowls.


16: You’re making a red, green and plain icing.


17: In the first bowl add some red food colouring and mix together.


18: In the second bowl add some green food colouring and mix together.


19: In the third bowl you don’t need to do anything as you’re wanting to keep it plain.


20: Pipe the mixtures onto the top of the cupcakes.  

This is where you can add whatever you like on the top of the cupcakes.
I’ve brought some Christmas cake decorations to add.
The finished cupcakes, now it’s time to eat and enjoy them.
