BLOGMAS Day 6- Rudolph Cupcakes

IMG_0202.JPG

We have seen these Rudolph cupcakes circulating Pinterest and Instagram for a while and decided we had to give them a go. We love chocolate cupcakes but we knew we would love Rudolph chocolate cupcakes even more!

These cupcakes were delicious recently we have been using raw cacao powder instead coco powder when baking as it gives the cupcakes and icing a richer chocolatier taste.  Let us know if you decide to give these cupcakes a try as we would love to know what you think!

Cupcake Ingredients
12 cupcake cases (we used gold ones)
110g butter (softened)
110g caster sugar
2 eggs
110g self-raising flour
2tbsp Raw Cacao powder
1 tsp baking powder

Icing Ingredients- we used our favourite hummingbird recipe (we halved it)

Toppings
Pretzels
Chocolate buttons
M&M’s (You will need the red and brown M&M’s)

Method
Put 12 cupcake cases in your cupcake tin
Pre heat the oven to 180oc
Cream the butter and sugar together in a large mixing bowl until light and fluffy
Add the eggs and mix
Sieve the flour, raw cacao powder and baking powder into the mixture and mix slowly.
Spoon the mixture into the cases (don’t over fill and you want room to decorate)
Place in the oven for 12 minutes
While your cupcakes are cooling you should follow the Hummingbird icing recipe
Use a pallet knife to spread the icing onto the cupcakes
Place 2 pretzels next to each other at the top of the cupcake
Then you will need 2 brown M&M’s for the eyes a button for the nose and a red M&M for the nose.

We hope you have as much fun making these little Rudolph’s as we did! They would be the perfect snack or to serve as part of a tea party.
