Christmas Cupcakes with Nougat

Christmas Cupcakes with Nougat

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!
