Method

  1. To make this cupcake recipe (opens in new tab), preheat the oven to 180/160oC for a fan oven. Line the tray with your cupcake cases.
  2. Cream the butter , sugar , vanilla extract and milk until light and fluffy. Add one egg with a third of the flour. Beat until just mixed and repeat until all the eggs and flour are incorporated.
  3. Place two thirds of the mixture into the cases and rest 1 truffle in the centre of each case.
  4. Top up the cases with the rest of the mixture Bake for 18-20 minute.
  5. Decorate by cutting 6 circles of the black icing the same size as the cake and placing on top of 6 of the cakes, then stick the topper to the black icing and smooth down. Decorate the other 6 with the vanilla buttercream.
Top Tip for making Victoria Threader's New Year cupcakes

Victoria says: 'Be sure to eat one while it’s warm (not too hot though) as the truffle oozes out of the centre when you bite into it, leave the rest to cool.'
