So I missed December 6th…. Having worked my day off and then driven half way across the country I was a little tired. Anyway, it’s Monday, it’s the 7th of December and it’s time for my favourite Christmas post from last year….
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 Dr Oetker’s chocolate icing
1 can of Dr Oetker’s gold shimmer spray
1 can of Dr Oetker’s 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 shimmering layers.
