Reindeer Cup Cakes

Everything is feeling a bit festive over at Mummy Snowy Owl HQ and that means its time to get crafty!

This week I decided to do some baking and I came up with these festive beauties! 

Want to give them a try? Here's what you'll need!

- A mixing bowl
- Whisk
- Measuring jug
- Cup cake tray
- Spoons
- Cup cake cases - £1.20 @ Asda
- Red velvet cake mix - £2.00 @ Aldi
- Eggs - 89p @ Asda
- Oil - £1.09 @ Asda
- Water
- Vanilla frosting - £1.75 @ Asda (mine was substituted for the more expensive, Betty Crocker)
- Chocolate reindeers - £1.00 a bag @ Asda or 35p each for the large ones I used
- Reindeer sprinkles - £1.00 @ Asda

Start by emptying the cake mix into the mixing bowl and add three eggs, 105ml of oil and 200ml of water. 

Mix until smooth

Bake for 18-22 minutes on 180 (160 for fan assisted ovens)

Once cool, open your frosting and give it a good stir. 

To decorate I did two styles. For the first I used a spatula to spread the frosting over the cup cake.

Next I sprinkled the cake with reindeer sprinkles.

For the ones with the Malteaser reindeers, I spooned out a small amount of cake from the centre.

I covered the top in frosting and added the reindeer. 

I then sprinkled them too!

That's it you're done!

These cakes went down a storm and were loved by everyone that tried them!

They are super effective and easy to do, making them a must for Christmas! 

Why not give them a try?

Happy baking!
