24 cupcakes

Easy to make 20 Minutes



for the recipe Christmas Tree Cupcakes


250 g unsalted butter , softened
2 tsp Queen Natural Vanilla Extract
250 g plain flour
½ tsp baking powder
1 cup caster sugar
3 eggs
½ cup sour cream
½ cup milk


2 drops Queen Food Colour Gel Green
2 Dr. Oetker Buttercream Icing

To decorate:

Dr. Oetker Ready to Roll Icing Coloured (Yellow)
Dr. Oetker Writing Icing Brights (Red)





Pre-heat oven to 160ºC and line a mini muffin tray with mini cupcake cases. Place all ingredients in stand mixer with paddle attachment and mix together on medium speed until well incorporated and mixture is light in colour.


Spoon batter evenly between cupcake cases and bake for 12-15 minutes or until top of cupcake springs back when gently pressed. Allow to cool completely.


Prepare Dr. Oetker Buttercream according to the instructions on the packet. Add Green Food Colour Gel and mix until evenly incorporated.


Knead a small amount of yellow Ready to Roll Icing and roll to about 2mm thick. Use a mini star cutter to cut small stars and set aside to dry. If you don’t have a mini star cutter, cut free hand with a small sharp knife.


Fit a piping bag with a closed star piping tip. Starting from the outside, gently pipe buttercream around cupcake and up on itself two and a half times to create tree shape. Top with a star and use writing icing to create tinsel.
