As I had a lot of mincemeat left from the mince pies, I decided to make these delicious cupcakes. I had a lot of fun with the kids in transforming these cupcakes into snowmen, gifts and tree using frosting and icing. With this recipe I am participating in the talented Cupcakista contest of the wonderful blog Cupcakeista under the theme Christmas Cupcakes.
25g muscovado sugar
150g self-raising flour
1 / 2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon mixed spice
1 tbsp milk
300g mincemeat (recipe here)
Mix all ingredients with a hand held mixer except the mincemeat, for about 1 min.
Add the mincemeat. Mix well
Divide the mixture between the cupcakes cases.
Bake in preheated oven 180C for 20-25min.
Cool then Cover with icing and coconut.
Decorate as you wish ...
