    • 125g of self raising flour
    • 25g of cornflour
    • 150g of butter
    • 150g of caster sugar
    • 3 eggs
    • 1 teaspoon of good quality vanilla extract
    • 2 tablespoons of milk
    • 12 Champagne truffles of your choice, I used dark chocolate truffles
    • For the topping:
    • 150g of black shop bought fondant icing
    • Vanilla buttercream:
    • 60g of unsalted butter at room temperature
    • 375g of icing sugar sifted
    • 120 ml of milk
    • ½ teaspoon of vanilla extract
    • 12 black or gold muffin cases


    • To make this cupcake recipe, preheat the oven to 180/160oC for a fan oven. Line the tray with your cupcake cases.

    • 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.

    • Place two thirds of the mixture into the cases and rest 1 truffle in the centre of each case.

    • Top up the cases with the rest of the mixture Bake for 18-20 minute.

    • 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.'
