It's almost Christmas!!! So, we thought we'd share our Extra Special Christmas Cupcakes with you....
They are French Vanilla & Fruit Mince Cupcakes with a Brandy Buttercream Frosting. They're a super festive treat and a nice alternative to Christmas mince pies & very easy to make.
Just take your favourite Vanilla cupcake recipe and add 200 - 250g of fruit mince to the batter. Bake them as you would bake any other cupcake.
To make the frosting, you need a standard quantity of your favourite Vanilla Buttercream and just add 2 tablespoons of brandy to it. Pipe a nice big swirl of the brandy buttercream onto your cupcake and decorate them anyway you want!
We decided to decorate half of the cupcakes with fondant Christmas trees & the other half with double swirls of frosting and silver sprinkles.
Hope you enjoy these delicious, festive treats! :-)
