  • Bonfire Night cupcakes

    Bonfire cupcakes

    Bonfire cupcakes are the perfect treat to make with the kids on the 5th of November. With a buttercream flame and chocolate sponge, these cupcakes are delicious. Our mummy blogger Anneliese says: 'Bonfire Night is a time to pull on the hats and gloves, huddle outside with loved ones and to warm ourselves beside a crackling bonfire. I love this time of year, as it's the last opportunity where we eat outside before winter takes hold. We indulge in warming pumpkin soup and buttery jacket potatoes wrapped in foil. Despite all the filling fare, there's always room reserved for cake! We make these super easy but very effective bonfire cupcakes on the 5th November, year after year. My elder son loves to sit and watch the glow of the bonfire while tucking into his very own edible version!'
