Christmas Cupcakes

For my church small group's last meeting for 2011 tonight:

Not nearly as professional as those made by The Cupcake Lady or Yummy Mummy, but they'll have to do.

I went with blue and red instead of green and red just for a change from the Christmas paraphernalia. They have caramel hidden centres. They took me forever - I forgot how sticky plastic icing gets. I've only worked with it once before (for my Rubix Cube cake). Now I remember why!

Looking forward to this evening - great company, food, wine, crazy Santa present swap, games... It's going to be fabulous :-)

They are gorgeous! Well done.

A tip (that works for me). roll out whatever colours you are going to use and then leave them for a while. the plastic icing hardens quite quickly (and you can add tylose too to make it harden hard) and then you come back and cut out 1,2,3 with your cutters. Much easier. And also easier to work with if your cupcakes have been frosted and then stuck in the fridge for a while so the frosting can harden.

Enjoy enjoy enjoy!
