Our Christmas trees are up so its only right we should start creating some Christmas treats. Thought we would kick off with these cute little Christmas tree cupcakes. They were plain cupcakes covered in butter cream icing coloured with green food dye and then decorated with sweets.

You will need
150g margarine
150g cater sugar
3 eggs
150g of self raising flour
Butter cream icing
Food colouring
Cupcake cases
Mini sweets to decorate cakes

Instructions
1. Place the margarine and sugar together in a bowl and beat until pale and fluffy.

4. Place the mixture into baking cases, in this instance we used small and large cases so that we had different sized trees. Bake in the oven until lightly golden.
