Mint Chocolate Christmas Tree Cupcakes

These mint chocolate Christmas tree cupcakes are simple to make and great for a Christmas party.
You may remember that a couple of weeks ago I bought some festive cupcake decorations and made some Ginger Christmas Cupcakes. As I had some bits left over I decided to try out my new green gel colouring and make some Christmas tree cupcakes. The cupcake itself is chocolate and the icing is mint flavoured.

Christmas tree cupcakes

To make 12 you will need:

For the cakes:

4oz butter
4oz caster sugar
3oz self raising flour
1oz cocoa

For the topping:

half a tub of vanilla frosting
a drop of green gel colouring
a drop of peppermint essence
sugar star decorations
a sprinkling of icing sugar

Start by making the chocolate cupcakes. Mix all the cake ingredients together. Bake at 180C for 12-15 mins until a skewer comes out clean.

Mix the frosting with green colouring and peppermint essence. Pipe onto the cooled cakes into the shape of a Christmas tree.

Finish with a sugar star decoration on top and a sprinkling of icing sugar.
