As I have mentioned before, the theme this Christmas is 'Christmas Puddings' and this weekend, inspired by finding some pudding cup cake toppers in Hobbycraft, our minds turned to food. What can we do to reproduce puddings in different ways?
There are always cupcakes using the toppers, but there are other ways of using them (especially as we're not really cup cake people because they tend to be so sweet). We thought first of shortbread rounds with the toppers in the centre. Okay, the colour is wrong, but it plays into the theme and we are very much a shortbread family!
What about chocolate crispy cakes with, placed on top, a dollop of white icing with green holly leaf shapes and red circles, if we've already used the toppers?
I'm also keen to go with a Chocolate Orange unwrapped and with a topping of white icing and the green leaves and red berries.
Then, today in Tesco's I saw these:
Christmas Pudding chocolate muffins! The fact that they were reduced made them irresistible …
