CHRISTMAS: Snowflake Cupcake Recipe

These are the quickest and easiest Christmas cupcakes; you can whip a batch up in well under an hour! Perfect for us busy parents who simply don't have the time to lovingly mould mini snowmen and reindeers out of icing (I miss those days!) Older children may even enjoy being part of making these cupcakes, so one for the whole family to enjoy. The little reindeer cupcake stands were from Lakeland and help to make a relatively simple cupcake look a bit more special, with minimal effort from you! They don't seem to sell these anymore, but there are plenty of other individual Christmas cupcake cases out there for very affordable prices like these, these or this.
What you'll need:

(Makes 12 large cupcakes)

Betty Crocker Victoria Sponge Cake Mix

180ml Water

3 Medium eggs

6 tbsp Vegetable oil

Edible Snowflake Wafers (£2.99 from Lakeland)

1x tub Betty Crocker Vanilla Buttercream Style Icing

Cupcake sprinkles, whichever style you'd like

12x Cupcake cases

What to do:

1) Preheat the oven at 180'C. Combine the water, eggs, cake mix and oil together in a bowl until completely smooth.

2) Put the 12 cupcakes cases into a cupcake tray and evenly spoon in the cake mixture.

3) Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown and cooked all the way through.

4) Leave to cool on a wire rack. Once completely cool you can either pipe or spread on the icing. I spread it on with a spatula and then made it textured to look like snow.

5) Sprinkle over whichever sprinkles you've chosen and stick a few of the edible snowflake wafers into the top of each cupcake.

6) Enjoy with a cup of tea (preferably when babies/children are sleeping!)

What is your favourite Christmas treat?
