I thought I would do some Christmas baking today as I was in the mood to do so. I like baking to be quite quick and easy so I have used a cupcake ready mix. I would definitely like to get into the habit of baking from scratch but that will be in the future.
I started of by pre-heat my oven to 180 degrees celsius/gas mark 4 and placing my Christmas cupcake cases into the baking tray. I poured the cupcake mix into a bowl with 1 medium egg and 60ml of semi-skimmed milk and whisked it together. Once it was all mixed up I placed it in the cupcake cases and put them in to oven for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown. After they were ready to take out of the oven I let them cool down while I got the icing ready in a piping bag. It felt like it took the cupcakes ages to cool down but once they had I started to pipe the icing on top. Finally, adding sprinkle and little decorations to the top (I especially love the mini tree’s) the cupcake’s were finished! They were really quick and easy to do, as well as tasting amazing!
