Xmas Tree Cupcakes

Cooking Time: Approx 1 hour (inc prep)

Difficulty: EASY!

Serves: Makes 12 cupcakes



• 1 cup white sugar

• 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons plain flour (sifted)

• 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons cocoa (sifted)

• 3/4 teaspoon baking powder

• 3/4 teaspoon baking soda

• 1/2 teaspoon salt

• 1 large egg (room temp)

• 125g natural yoghurt (room temp)

• 1/4 cup avocado or rice bran oil

• 1 tablespoon vanilla extract

• 1/2 cup boiling water (this intensifies the chocolate flave - incase you were wonderin')

• Mini m&m's for bauble decoration

• Dusting of icing sugar (for snow effect)




• 60g butter (softened)

• 120g cream cheese (room temp)

• 250g icing sugar

• Quarter to a half a bottle of green food colouring (depending on the shade of green you like)




• Pre-heat oven to 180ºc.

• Place 12 cupcake cases into cupcake baking dish (pref black or brown to emulate the trunk of a Xmas tree).

• Mix all ingredients together with an electric beater until smooth & combined.

• Carefully pour cupcake mixture into cupcake cases (about 3/4 full, to give room for rising).

• Place into pre-heated oven and bake for 15 minutes.

• Allow cakes to cool fully on a wire rack before frosting.



• Place butter, sugar & cream cheese into a mixing bowl & beat with an electric mixture until combined, smooth - yet stiff when peaks are formed. If it's too wet - add a little more icing sugar. If it's too stiff, add a splash of milk.

• Add the green food colouring, bit by bit until you reach desired shade of green for your Xmas Tree topping.

• Transfer frosting into a piping bag. Use a large star nozzle, and pipe out a Xmas Tree twirl on top of each cake.

• Decorate with m&m baubles (I just used the red, orange, blue & yellow ones).

• For the final touch, sift (from a heightened distance) some icing sugar over the top of the cupcakes, to create a snow capped effect on your wee Xmas Tree cupcake creations.

• Enjoy on their own - or with a big family sized tub of Tip Top Vanilla ice-cream.
