Christmas Tree Cupcakes

Bake to impress with the most festive cupcakes around!



  • Preheat the oven to 180C or 160C for fan assisted ovens and line a cupcake tin with cupcake cases.

  • In a jug, whisk the milk and vinegar together and leave to sit.

  • In a large mixing bowl, cream the sugar and butter together, sift in the flour, bicarbonate of soda, cacao powder and salt. Stir, then pour in the milk mixture and mix until combined.

  • Spoon the cake batter into the cupcake cases, place in the oven to bake for 25 minutes or until cooked through then leave to cool.


  • Combine the butter and icing sugar together, add the milk and mix until fluffy. Add a few drops of green food colouring or green powder until the icing turns green.

  • Pipe the icing on to the cupcakes and top with sprinkles for a Christmas tree touch.

If you want to go the extra mile, dust your Christmas tree cupcakes with edible glitter!
