Christmas would not be complete without sweet nougat, dainty gold stars and naughty angels to delight the Christmas sweet table! Michelle, Tanya and I always have a pre-Christmas party before we all start our festivities with our families and as usual it was a great chance to chat, laugh and eat! Thanks to Michelle we had tasty eats and drinks and a beautiful Christmas table to sit at. I made these Christmas themed cupcakes with rich red cranberries, sweet juicy pieces of glace pineapple, white chocolate drops and a hint of vanilla. Before I baked the cupcakes I added a large piece of macadamia nougat to each cupcake and as they baked the nougat bubbled over the baked surface of the cupcake. Of course with it being a festive girly celebration I laced each cupcake with orange liquer, dusted them with icing sugar and sprinkled them with a galaxy of tiny ethereal gold stars from Nicoletta. No wonder Michelle’s angels had these sweet grins on their faces when they saw these heavenly cupcakes arrive!
