Christmas wreath cupcakes

Something very different from my usual lunchboxes: Christmas wreath cupcakes!

They are very easy to make and you will need:

  • Cupcakes (use your favourite (vanilla) cupcake/fairycake recipe)
  • White icing or white fondant
  • Buttercream – I used 200 gr butter with 400 gr icing sugar which is enough to cover 24 cup cakes – and green food colouring
  • Fondant for decorating, I used red, yellow and green
  • Piping bag with star nozzle
  • Small cutters

Method:

  • My cupcakes had risen a little bit too much in the middle, so once they were cooled down, I sliced off the top to make them even.
  • Cover the middle of each cupcake with a circle of white icing or white fondant.
  • Fit your piping bag with a star nozzle, fill with the green buttercream and pipe around the edge to create the wreath.
  • Make your decoration, by rolling out the fondant thinly and cutting out the shapes with your cutters or a small knife. I shaped the holly leaves by bending it lightly and letting it dry over a chopstick.
  • Finish your Christmas Wreath cupcakes by decorating them with fondant stars, balls, holly etc.
