Step 4:

Bake on the middle shelf of the preheated oven for about 20-25 minutes, or until golden, well risen and a skewer inserted into the middle of the cakes comes out clean. Remove from the oven and leave to cool in the tin for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

Step 6:

Now ready for decoration. Once the cupcakes are totally cool, put green frosting top of the cake and place strawberry gently to give Christmas tree shape.

Step 7:

Fill the piping bag with the green frosting and, working from the centre, pipe pointed branch shapes towards the edges of the cupcake. Keep doing this, turning the cupcake as you go, until you have the top of a tree. Repeat with the next layer up, making the branches shorter. Carry on with more layers, making the branches ever shorter as you get to the top of the tree.

Step 8:

When you finish all cupcakes, dust with green glitter and decorate with coloured sugar balls. Top with a white or silver star.
