After I had experimented with these Christmas Cranberry, Fruit & Chocolate Cupcakes, my husband, Eddie, declared them the best cupcakes I had ever made! This is a huge compliment from a man who has sampled absolutely everything that has been created in the Cupcakes2Delite Kitchen. With his birthday being a week after the sampling of these cupcakes he proceeded to place his order for his birthday celebration, Christmas Cranberry, Fruit & Chocolate Cupcakes with a sprinkling of icing sugar and nothing else.
Into the birthday cupcake batter I added cinammon, nutmeg, all-spice and then generous handfuls of plump cranberries, dried pineapple & mango and dark chocolate drops. Inspired by Eddie’s love for the simplicity in these cupcakes, I photographed them with their sprinkling of icing sugar and of course a mad helping of red polka dot cupcake holders and a red declaration of love for the man who is my world. These cupcakes will definitely be on the menu for Christmas with perhaps just a splash of Amarula Gold for total decadence.
