1.) Christmas Cupcakes:

Not everyone is a fan of fruit cake or mince pies.

These light coconut cakes speckled with jewel-like ruby raspberries make a great alternative and can even be made in advance and frozen ready iced but without the raspberry and holly decoration.

Christmas Cupcakes.

Yum, yum!!

Each cake has been sprinkled with Whisky and has a generously injected surprise of caramel inside.

Covered with double cream salted caramel crunch and Dr. Oetker Giant Chocolate Stars. Delicious!

    I think the raspberry cupcakes look delicious! I've never had cupcakes with raspberry in them before. I love Boston Cream Cupcakes. You always have such great recipes here. Enjoy the rest of your week!- Natalie A.

    Hi Claire, the Christmas cupcakes look lovely and if they freeze well once decotaed are perfect! I like the combination of orange and cranberry, so they sound good too. If time permits I plan to have a go at making some orange and cranberry fudge adapted from the vanilla fudge recipe I use.Thank you for linking up with the #MMBC.xx
