I don’t know about you guys but I LOVE cakes. Any kind. I could without a doubt, eat a whole freshly baked cake in one sitting! Did I mention I’m a massive sweet tooth?!
So for that reason I decided that today’s post would be themed around that. Cake. I saw these in Girlfriend Magazine but I put my own twist on them to change it up a bit! I knew that I had to try them out because they looked absolutely adorable!!
The first thing you want to do is make a cupcake batter. I just used White Wings Vanilla Cupcake Mix because I’m a little lazy. But honestly any vanilla cupcake recipe will do which is why I’m not going to go in detail about this step!
Once you’ve made the batter and placed them in patty cases, you want to grab some red or green food dye (i.e. Christmas colours) and pour a tiny amount in the centre.
Using a skewer (or chopstick) start in the centre and swirl the food dye around to get a ‘marble’ effect.
Bake and set aside to cool completely.
Using raspberry straps, cut into the following shapes. These will serve as the ‘ribbon’. (Tip – don’t use a serrated knife as mine slipped on the sugar consequently slicing the corner of my finger off..)
Make your frosting. Like I said before pretty much everything is up to personal preference, so make whatever your heart desires!
Arrange your ribbon by using excess frosting to act as glue.
And you’re done! How easy was that?!
I will be making lots of these little guys this holiday season, and you should too! The fact that they allow for quite a lot of freedom is great as you can make them to suit your preferred taste. Thanks for reading!
Enjoy the sunshine x
