So one of the things on my festive bucket list this year was to do some Christmas baking. This week, Carly and I got our (metaphorical) aprons on and created some simple but delicious festive treats.
As I am obsessed with Yule Log Cupcakes (which are not yet back in shops *cries*) I knew I wanted to have a go at making them. I originally planned on making from scratch (I did get an A* in food technology for GCSE after all…) but then I figured it would be tricky enough baking with a newborn, without the added stress, so I cheated and went for a shop bought kit (and picked up the Igloo cake kit at the same time for good measure)…
You will Need:
-Tesco Chocolate Cupcake Kit
-Dr Oetker Easy Fill Rich Chocolate
-One Medium egg
Follow the instructions on the cupcake kit. When cooked and cooled but still warm, use the easily fill nozzle to add a chocolate sauce filling to your cakes. Add the frosting and chocolate curls (included in the kit) and then cut a flake into three and add one to each cupcake. Et voila – your very own Yule Log Cupcakes. Delicious!
-Tesco Igloo Cake Kit
– One egg
– Vegetable Oil
This kit is so simple but makes an absolutely delicious vanilla cake. I’ve never personally cooked a cake in a microwave before so was a little wary but actually you wouldn’t be able to tell and so quick and easy! Definitely worth doing when you have children and/or babies around.
If you would like a laugh, head over to my vlogmas to see Carly and I baking!
Do you have any other (easy) festive baking recipes for us to try?
