Three out of the four cocktail cupcakes were made and frosted in time to take to Hazels, working on only a few hours a sleep, not for the first time.
The syrup-soaked fruit goes in the bottom of the cupcake cases. This seems to make the cases very sticky so I added an extra case round some of them.
These are the ones I took along to Hazel's (all but the Chocolate & Brandy).
And having a one track mind, I forgot the sugar in the Mini Chocolate Brandy Cupcakes too. Once frosted they still tasted good, which makes me wonder why they changed the recipe for only these mini cupcakes?... Nonetheless here are the photographs for you below. I'm really pleased with the coating of sprinkles on top. We placed these in the middle of the table as little Christmas treats for our visitors.
