I thought I would share with you my latest baking creation - festive cupcakes! I baked these at the weekend, packaged them up in some lovely Christmas cupcake boxes I found in lakeland and distributed them around family and friends as a little pre Christmas treat.
I was really chuffed with how these turned out, and everybody seemed so pleased with them! I think they make a lovely gift if you want to give something a little different, and have someone who is difficult to buy for (who doesn't like cupcakes!). They're also a great idea if you are doing your Christmas shopping on a budget.
The boxes from lakeland were £5.99 and hold 4 cupcakes, they are so sweet and even come with a little gift tag attached to the bow.
I went for a simple vanilla cupcake with vanilla buttercream. Even though the people I was baking for are not coeliac's like myself, or gluten intolerant, I still made the cupcakes gluten free (to be honest, I don't know where I'd start with a regular cupcake recipe!). But everyone is pretty much used to my gluten free baking nowadays and I'm yet to find someone who can tell the difference! :)
Next up is icing and decorating my Christmas cake which is sat patiently on the top shelf of my kitchen cupboard!
Hope you're having a lovely week :)
