Christmas Pudding Cupcakes
Last weekend was the school fete and I decided to make some reindeer cupcakes as well as some Christmas Pudding ones.These are pretty simple and you just need a round cookie cutter and if possible a holly plunger.
I started by making a batch of normal sponge cakes. I then added frosting on top so that it went into a slight point. This helps when you add the circle of brown icing, making it into a dome.
I then used the same cutter to make a white circle and using a sharp knife did a squiggle half way through it to make it look like the custard.
I placed this on top of the cupcakes.
Lastly I made holly using my holly plunger and used red icing to make berries. I then used a cake pop stick to make small indents into the icing. Simple and in my opinion much nicer than the real thing. (Sorry I am no fan of eating Christmas Pudding!)
