So today I thought that I would do something simple yet super Christmassy - Christmas baking/cake decorating!
On Saturday, my little brother and I decided that we wanted to make some cupcakes and I just thought I would share them with you. If you don't know already the ingredients you will need to make 12 cupcakes are:
110g of butter
110g of caster sugar
110g of self raising flour
2 medium sized eggs
We chose to make butter cream to decorate our cakes and then used various Christmas decorations to make them look really cute. We used green food colouring for the butter cream and also topped some with melted chocolate to make them look like a Christmas pudding. I was actually quite impressed and proud of the outcome of these cakes, which I know isn't much of an achievement but its a big step up from some of my other decorative attempts. I also think that these designs would look really cool on cake pops but I didn't have the moulds to make them so I had to settle for normal cupcakes.
