Christmas Recipes For Kids – Reindeer Cupcakes

You Will Need:

(makes 12)

For the Muffins

  • 150g butter
  • 150g sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 50g cocoa
  • 100g self raising flour

For the Topping

  • 200g soft butter
  • 40g cocoa
  • 360g icing sugar
  • 4 Curly Wurlys
  • Smarties (For the eyes and nose. You could use other sweets or halved cherries and dried fruit if you prefer.)

Method:

For the Muffins

  1. Pre-heat the oven 180C
  2. Cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  3. Beat the eggs and gradually add them to the butter and sugar mix.
  4. Fold in the flour and cocoa to make a smooth batter.
  5. Divide the batter between 12 deep muffin cases and bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes.

For the Topping

  1. Cut each Curly Wurly into thirds, then divide each third into two lengthways to make the antlers.
  2. Cream together the butter, cocoa and icing sugar into a smooth but thick paste. It needs to be able to hold its shape for piping. (If it’s too dry add a teaspoon of milk, and if too wet add a little more icing sugar.)
  3. When the muffins are completely cold pipe or spread the buttercream topping onto the top of each cake.
  4. Push a pair or antlers through the frosting and into the sponge of each cake and pop on your Smartie eyes and noses.
