Christmas Tree Cupcakes
50 mins (prep 30, cooking 20)
8 ingredients
20 servings
I found a Christmas tree cupcake pan at a local supermarket and decided to make them using the Easy White Cake recipe from the recipe booklet which came with my new (Christmas gift) KitchenAid mixer. They were fun to make and messy to frost. LOL Having more than one pan would definately have speeded things up. I decorated the trees with some star-shaped Christmas candies. I also dropped some of the candies into the batter before baking, which gave some of the cupcakes a color-spotted inside. The round cake bits which resulted from cutting off the cupcake "humps" make nice, bite size, sandwich 'cookies' when put together with extra frosting. Spread the frosting on the flat side of one round and cover with another.
