12 Days Of Christmas | Christmas Cupcakes

This year I have decided to a little lead up to Christmas and name it the '12 Days Of Christmas'.
I know traditionally the 12 Days Of Christmas is from the 25th of December to the 6th of January, however I thought I'd do the opposite and post a blog everyday for 12 days before Christmas.
My first post today is Christmas themed cupcakes.
Although very simple to make, I love baking cupcakes, especially on Sunday's when I don't really do much.

I decided to buy some Christmas cupcake cases, Christmas decorations and Christmas themed flavourings. 
These are just simple cupcakes with a very tiny twist of flavour. 
The cupcakes in green cases were peppermint flavoured with peppermint chocolate icing & differing decorations; a snowman, silver balls & sugar pieces.
The red cases with just stars on them (far right) had caramel flavouring within the cupcake, with caramel icing - these were my favourite. Can't beat a bit of caramel!
Lastly, the other cupcakes were just simple vanilla cupcakes with both vanilla icing and chocolate icing.
If you'd like to recreate these, I'll leave the recipe below.

  • 110g/4oz butter or margarine, softened at room temperature
  • 110g/4oz caster sugar
  • 2 free-range eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 110g/4oz self-raising flour
  • 1-2 tbsp milk

I hope you enjoyed this post & are looking forward to the rest of my '12 Days Of Christmas' posts.
