These cupcakes are the taste of Christmas! It’s the first time I’ve made them and I can honestly say they are one of the best flavour combinations I have ever tried!
I made these cakes the same day as the Christmas traybake so my kitchen smelt soooo good and it really got me into the Christmas spirit! I enjoyed my cake with a glass of bubbly (as you do!) and it worked really well with the citrus flavours!
Even though these contain Christmassy flavours you could even have them in the summer at a garden party by tweaking the frosting – add vanilla and take out the cinnamon.
I included the orange curd as option which does add something a little different to the cake and makes a nice gooey surprise when you bite into it! You can of course leave it out if you wish.
Give them ago over the holidays – I can truly say they will be a great hit with family and friends!
