Christmas bakes- Candy cane cupcakes

Everybody loves a good cupcake so why not turn your favourite chocolate cupcake (or in my case i made white chocolate) into something a bit more festive. Let the baking begin.

CANDY CANE CUPCAKES

you will need

  • your favourite chocolate (or white chocolate) cupcakes ready for icing.
  • 3 sticks unsalted butter, softened
  • 3 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • Pink food coloring
  • 3 cups icing sugar
  • 5 candy canes, crushed

1/ Placing your candy canes in a bag or between baking paper, using a rolling pin crush them into smaller pieces.

2/ In a electric mixer beat the butter, cream, vanilla and food colouring on a medium speed until mixed together well. Roughly 1-2 mins.

3/ Add the icing sugar and continue beat on a low speed until all is combined. Then on a high speed for 5 mins until the mixture is nice and fluffy

4/ Using a piping bag, (or a spatula if you don’t have the piping bags) pipe the icing onto your cupcakes. Sprinkle a bit of crushed candy cane on top.

and TA-DA you have christmas cupcakes 🙂
