DIY: Creative Christmas cupcakes!


 oday I made some cupcakes for the Christmas Eve dinner with my family and kin.
It has become a tradition that every year I create new desserts to amaze them, this year I tried to make some cupcakes, it's the first time for me and I'd like to show you the final result and the recipe I used.
I made vanilla cupcakes, here are the decorations I created:

Merry Christmas!!!


For 12 vanilla cupcakes
- 4,5 oz. Butter
- 4,5 oz. Sugar
- 3 Eggs
- 4,5 oz. Flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 2 spoons milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla

For frosting:
- 2,7 oz. Butter
- 2 spoons milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 8 oz. powdered sugar

For decorations:
- White fondant
- Food dyes
- Red glitter for food
- Candied cherries

Step1: Cupcakes
First of all heat the oven to 374 F(190 ° C)
In a bowl combine the butter and the sugar, whisk until well blended

 Whisk the eggs

Add slowly the aggs to the butter together with a spoon of flour and whisk

Add the milk and all the flour and whisk until completely incorporated into the butter mixture

Now you can pour the batter in the baking cups

Bake for 15 to 20 minutes.

Here is my first cupcake ready to be decorated!

Step2: Frosting

In a bowl whisk the butter with the milk and add the powder sugar. Whisk to combine.
Cover the cupcakes with the frosting:

You can add food dyes to color the frosting, I left it white because I want some snow for Christmas!

Step3: Decorations!

I made polar bears with white fondant, here are the elements for the bodies:

Then I made penguins:

I hope my guests will like the cupcakes!
