Christmas Cupcakes

For our Baking for Babies Christmas fair, i made my first batch of festive cupcakes. I decided on a simple vanilla flavour and to decorate with vanilla buttercream and sugarpaste toppings.

I followed a simple 'all in one' receipe, throwing all the ingredients in a bowl and mixing, and folding in the baking powder.


8oz Butter
8oz Caster Sugar
8oz Self Raising flour
4 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoon baking powder

Buttercream Topping:

9oz butter
18oz butter
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoon water

I coloured sugarpaste with a holly green gel colour, rolled out and cut holly and tree shapes using cutters. I made red balls for berries, and red strips for 'tinsel' decoration. Once the cupcakes had cooled thoroughly, i piped a buttercream swirl and topped with the sugarpaste decoration.
