Christmas Light Cupcakes

We've made quintessential Christmas lights into a cupcake, not only do they look great, but they taste great too. Topped with a vanilla icing and sprinkled with colourful, crunchy, chocolate drops, these treats are definitely not just for kids!

Amisa Gluten Free Chocolate Cake Mix

420g Icing Sugar

225g Butter

1/4 tsp Salt

1 tsp Vanilla Extract

1 bag Biona Organic Carnival Drops

Black Decorating Icing (ready to pipe)

  1. Prepare a cupcake tin by lining it with cupcake cases and set aside.
  2. Make Amisa Gluten Free Cake Mix batter according to box instructions.
  3. Spoon an even amount of batter into each of the cupcake liners and bake according to box instructions. 
  4. Whilst cakes are baking, make your buttercream, Add the powdered sugar, butter, salt and vanilla extract to the bowl of a stand mixer and starting at slow speed, gradually increase speed until thick and smooth.
  5. If your consistency is too thick, add a little milk a drop at a time, and if it’s too thin, add a little more powdered sugar.
  6. Take the cakes out of the oven and allow to cool completely before icing.
  7. Now for the fun bit! Once completely cool, remove from the baking tin and pipe your icing on the cakes in an upwards swirl.
  8. Next, pipe the black decorating icing around the white icing (see image) so that it looks like a cable for lights. 
  9. Finally, add the Biona Chocolate Carnival drops evenly around the black icing, to give the impression of Christmas lights. Enjoy.
