Heat oven to 190C/170 fan/gas 5
and line a 12-hole muffin tin with cake
cases. Put all the cake ingredients into
a bowl and mix with a whisk until
smooth. Spoon the mix into the cases,
bake for 25 mins until golden and risen
and a skewer comes out clean. Cool
on a wire rack.
For the frosting, beat the butter,
vanilla extract and icing sugar until pale
and creamy and completely combined.
To make snowmen, reindeer and
Christmas puddings, first spread the icing
over the top of each cake. Then lay the
chocolate buttons on top, slicing some
buttons into quarters to make ears and
hats. Finally, use icing pens for the
details. For the Christmas tree, colour the
icing with green food colouring and pipe
onto the cakes using a star-shaped
nozzle, decorate with sweets, sprinkles
and white chocolate stars.
