Dualit Product Recipe

Festive Cupcakes

Serves: 12 Preparation Time: 15 minutes Cooking Time: 25 minutes



  • 150g margarine
  • 150g caster sugar
  • 150g self-raising flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 100g beetroot, cooked and grated
  • 200g white vanilla buttercream
  • Green food colouring
  • 54 green, 6 yellow, 6 brown M&Ms
  • 200g White buttercream
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 50g white fondant
  • 12 chocolate chips
  • 6 red M&Ms
  • 2 curly wurlys, halved widthways
  1. Preheat the oven to 160°C Fan / 350°F / Gas 4. Line a 12-hole muffin tin with cases.
  2. Measure the ingredients into a large bowl. Beat until smooth. I'm using the Dualit Hand Mixer for ease.
  3. Spoon into the cases and bake for 20-25 minutes until well risen and set in the centre.
  4. To decorate the trees, mix the buttercream and green colouring together in a bowl and spread over the cakes. Arrange the green M&Ms sideways in a tree shape. Top with a yellow for the star and brown for the tree trunk.
  5. To decorate the Rudolfs, mix the buttercream and cocoa powder together in a bowl until smooth. Spread over the cakes. Stamp out rounds for the eyes using white fondant and add to the cakes. Add chocolate chips for the eyeballs, red M&Ms for the nose and halved curly wurlys for the antlers.
