It’s 12th December and I’m half way through my Advent calendar…. I hope you are all enjoying it?
So it’s Fiesta Friday once again and I’m bringing another shimmery explosion to Angie’s place!
I made some wonderfully colourful cupcakes for my Godson and his family. I knew he’d be excited about Christmas when I visited, so I wanted to bring him something special.
The shimmery cupcake recipe is a perfect one to do with children, it’s very simple to do. It uses my fail safe chocolate muffin recipe with shop bought icing.
Chocolate cupcake Ingredients:
150g brown sugar
200g plain flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
2 tablespoon cocoa powder
1 can of chocolate icing
1 can gold shimmer spray
1 can silver shimmer spray
Line a cupcake tin with foil cases. Preheat the oven to 190°/ gas mark 5 or turn your Rayburn off! Cream the butter and sugar, then add in the eggs. Sift in all the dry ingredients and then add the milk. Spoon the mixture into the cases.
Bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes, then leave to cool completely.
I used the cupcake icing to top each cake and left them to set.
I covered the table with newspaper and starting spraying! It was great fun building up the shimmery layers.
My Godson thanked me for the cupcakes by drawing me a beautiful picture. I hope Santa can bring me a tiara like the one in the drawing!
