How to Make Mini Christmas Tree Cupcakes

You will need:
24 Mini Cupcakes of your choice (check out some recipes at Lydia Bakes)
Vanilla Buttercream, tinted green (recipe here)
Piping Bag fitted with a 1M or large star piping tip
Colourful sprinkles
Yellow fondant
Mini star cookie cutter

  • Fill your piping bag half way with buttercream.
  • Pipe a swirl around your cupcake, starting on the outside and working your way inwards, overlapping three times.
  • Pinch the top of the icing so the tree has a nice point at the top.
  • Place coloured sprinkles on the icing swirl.
  • Roll out yellow fondant with a rolling pin and cut out small stars (you may want to do this in advance) place a little star on the top of each cupcake.

You can get creative and make all sorts of colour combinations, I made white and pink ones to match my Christmas tree at home!

Happy baking and Merry Christmas!
