We made these Rudolph mincemeat cup cakes last week. This is a great way to use up any left over mincemeat from the Christmas cake or pudding. The mincemeat makes the cupcakes have a more festive taste without being as rich as a whole mince pie or fruit cake – so perfect for children. The twiglets are just decoration though as they don’t taate particularly nice with the cake.
4oz caster sugar
4oz self raising flour
brown food colouring
Preheat oven to 180/ Gas mark 4
Mix all the cake ingredients until smooth. Bake the cakes for 20 mins.
Once cooled, decorate using the butter icing. Add twiglets for antlers, a cherry for the nose. Put dots using the black icing in the middle of the marshmallows for the eyes.
