So it’s that time of year again.
I started off my Christmas session making these delicious cupcakes
The cupcake flavour is Choc Cherry. These are by far one of my favourite flavoured cupcakes I’ve made. They taste like Cherry Ripe with a touch of Redskin.
Not only was the flavour great but by cooking them at a lower temperature for a longer period of time they stayed nice and moist. (I cooked these in a fan forced oven set at 140 degree Celsius for a period of 25-30 minutes- the cupcakes I’ve previously baked have been cooked at 180 degree Celsius for 12 minutes).
Buttercream was used to ice my cupcakes. With the Reindeer cupcakes I added Cocoa to the mix to give it the light brown colour. The Red nose was made from M&Ms and the antlers were made using Pretzels.
The Christmas trees used the left over buttercream from the Reindeers but I added green icing colour (the same colouring I use to colour my fondant). Then I piped the buttercream onto the Cupcake giving it a Christmas tree look. I then added sprinkles for the Christmas decorating feel.
These Cupcakes were a success at work with many positive complements on the taste. My family also loved the taste and decorations.
Thanks for reading and stayed tuned for more X-mas treats
