How To Make Christmas Tree Mini Cupcakes
These Christmas tree mini cupcakes are easier to make than they look. Enjoy vanilla frosted desserts with strawberries for rich and moist tarty treats.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease mini muffin cups or line with paper liners.
Mix pastry flour, white sugar, and cocoa powder together in a bowl; add water, oil, and vanilla extract and blend until batter is smooth. Spoon batter into the prepared muffin cups.
Bake in the preheated oven for 8 to 12 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in the tin for 5 minutes.
Mix frosting and green food coloring together in a bowl until evenly combined. Transfer frosting to a pipe bag or plastic bag with a snipped corner; refrigerate for 5 minutes.
Squeeze a small amount of frosting onto the hulled side of each strawberry and place each onto a cupcake so the strawberry is in the shape of a tree.
Pipe frosting onto each strawberry to look like leaves. Add candies to the “tree” to look like ornaments and place a star-shaped candy on top of each “tree”.
Serve and enjoy.
