Tis the season to be Jolly……

….. Or at least it would be if everywhere wasn’t flooding outside, if I didn’t have a hideous cold and an assignment to hand in tomorrow. But never mind, because I have a secret weapon – Eggnog Bear-y Cakes! They have an eggnog flavoured sponge with a sparkly rum buttercream to make them look like snowballs.


The recipe for this is easy – use a normal vanilla cupcake batter, but replace the 240ml of milk with the same amount of non alcholic Eggnog (I discovered it in the world food aisle at Tesco) and bake as normal. Make the frosting by creaming 110g unsalted butter with 500g icing sugar, 75ml whole milk and 1 tsp rum flavouring (or real rum if you don’t have Baby Bears who want to lick all the frosting off every cake). When the cakes are cool, smear on the buttercream with a palette knife and sprinkle with white magic sparkles.

Spread the Christmas cheer – the holidays ARE coming!
