These simple little cupcakes can be made to look very festive with the addition of some creative frosting!
Using my basic cake mix, you can add some festive flavours if you wish, the same too for the basic buttercream frosting.
Once baked and cooled, pipe some red frosting swirls. Pipe them so the are just short of touching the sides of the cupcake case.
Leave them to form a 'crispy' coat, then soften the peak on the top and pipe some white frosting.
Next, using a smaller piping nozzle, pipe a white ring around where there's the gap between the cupcake case and the red frosting.
Add some decorations, and you're done!
