Christmas Tree Cupcakes

I love to bake!

I am not very good at the design side, but apparently my cakes are very tasty – so much so hubby’s workmates are frequently putting in orders!

In the run up to Christmas I thought I would have a go at some Christmas themed cakes with the kids, with the intention of entering @englishmum #BigChristmasBakeOff.

So here is my latest offering:

4oz Butter, softened
4oz Caster Sugar
2 Eggs, Lightly Beaten
4oz Self Raising Flour
1 Tsp Vanilla Essence

Preheat Oven to 190C and line a cupcake tin with cases (this makes twelve larger cakes)

Place the butter and sugar in a large bowl and beat together until light and fluffy, then gradually beat in the eggs and vanilla essence.  Sift the flour and fold into the mixture.

Spoon mixture into the paper cases and bake in a preheated oven for 15-20 mins.  Transfer to a wire rack and allow to cool.

Once cool you can pipe on the buttercream icing and decorate:

8oz Butter
1Tbsp Cream or Milk
12oz Icing Sugar

Place the butter and cream in a bowl and beat together.  Gradually add the icing sugar and beat until smooth.

My result:
