Fancy a reindeer cupcake?


It’s crazy cupcake day at the Sprogs’ school – a fundraiser for the school band – so I whipped up two batches of Reindeer Cupcakes for the occasion. Festive, no? They’re a recipe I originally made for a Christmas in July banquet. Here’s how I did it, dead easy …

RECIPE: Reindeer cupcakes

  • 125g butter, melted
  • 3/4 cup caster sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 & 1/2 cups self-raising flour
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 12 red patty cases
  • White icing
  • Chocolate tiny teddies
  • Mini M&Ms
  • Smarties

METHOD: Beat butter and sugar with electric mixer until creamy. Add eggs one at time, beating after each. Add flour and milk, beat again. Place red patty cases in a 12-hole cupcake tray and pour in mixture. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden. Cool. Ice with white icing. Decorate with two Tiny Teddies for antlers, two brown Mini M&Ms for eyes and a red Smartie for a nose.
