Cupcake Christmas Tree!

Friday, December 21, 2012
Today myself and my sister made some cinnamon cupcakes which were easy to makes, although they did turn out a little bit (a lot) deformed in the oven! The cupcakes were made using a regular/plain cupcake recipe but we added ground cinnamon - quite a lot and they taste great. 
While the cupcakes were in the oven I made some green butter cream icing to top the cupcakes with. The cupcakes didn't take that long in the oven, about 20 minutes. It was the first time I had made butter cream icing and it came out quite well, although I had to add some flour to thicken the icing. We made the icing green so that the cupcakes would look vaguely like a Christmas tree when they were stacked in their tree stand. 
The end result! After the green icing the cupcakes looked good - we added yellow chocolate beads first to look like lights but they didn't look good so we added red glitter sugar instead - we also added silver edible beads after we took this picture - the cupcakes were a big hit! I will have to make some more festive goodies! 


Feel free to leave me a comment, I read all of them!
