So, we spent the holidays with my parents. They had an “extension-warming” party today, inviting their friends round to see the new extension on their house (which looks amazing, by the way).
Because I had Christmas cupcake toppers and like to bake, I decided to bake some Christmas cupcakes for the party (the recipe made a lot of cupcakes, so it had to be an occasion where a lot of people were available to eat them!).
My mum helped with the icing, and I think they turned out really nicely. They are chocolate, chocolate chip cupcakes with orange-flavoured buttercream icing (topped with rice sugar snowflakes, edible glitter, and sugar Christmas-themed toppers). They went down well, so I’m really pleased with them.
