Family Treat. Click picture to enlarge. Recipe below.
Basic white cake recipe of your choice
Basic white frosting
Red food paste (I use Wiltons®)
Decorator bag & tip of choice
1-2 crushed candy canes
Paper Holiday baking cups
Food safe paint brush or cotton swabs
Oven to 350°F - 176°C
Make your cake batter
Put about ¾ cup in separate bowl & color it red
Place about a 2TBS of plain white batter in each paper cup
Place about a teaspoonful of red batter on top
Top with remaining white batter till each cup is ¾ full
Bake for about 18 - 20 minutes or till toothpick comes clean
Crush candy canes, use a Ziploc® bag or wax paper
Put tip of choice into your bag, turn down top. Using the paint brush or swab, add 3 lines of red food paste to the inside of the bag, kinda spaced evenly. Fill bag with frosting, pull up the fold & twist top so frosting gets to tip
Frost each cupcake & sprinkle with crushed candy while still moist
You could also just frost with a knife and use a toothpick dipped in food color to add the swirls
