Snowman Cupcakes

Wowww what a hectic few days! Very sad to not have had the time to write anything for Blogmas but very happy to have spent a few days with friends and family…hoping to be more consistent from here on.

So one thing I did manage to do was a little baking, and something quite simple but also quite Christmassy which I enjoyed doing…

 

Ingredients: 

  • 110g/4oz butter or margarine
  • 110g/4oz Caster Sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 110g/4oz self raising flour
  • Chocolate chips (optional)
  • Medium sized marshmallows (15-20)
  • Writing Icing
  • 225g (8oz) icing sugar
  • 2-3tbsp warm water

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4 and line a 12-hole cake tin with paper cases.
  2. Cream butter and sieved sugar together until smooth.
  3. Beat in eggs and stir in vanilla extract.
  4. Fold in sieved flour until combined. (Stir in chocolate chips here)
  5. Spoon cakes into the cases.
  6. Bake for 15 mins, until the cakes are golden and spongy.
  7. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.

Decoration:

  1. Decorate Marshmallows with writing icing (faces of your choice)
  2. Combine icing sugar with water (adding a little at a time) until a creamy consistency.
  3. Spread over cakes and stick on marshmallows.
  4. Leave icing to harden.
  5. Complete the snowman design.
  6. Enjoy!

My family and friends loved these! They’re also a very fitting representation of the melting snowmen in our garden (sadly our snow has now all gone 😦 ) but still hoping for a white Christmas…

I hope you enjoyed this simple yet fun recipe, it takes around an hour and a half in total to do and is great to do with friends, or children!

Did you have a go?
