CHRISTMAS TREE PETITE CAKES
Place water and egg into a bowl, and then add MAURI Crème Muffin Mix.
Using a beater, mix on low speed for 1 minute. Scrape down.
Mix for a further 3 minutes on medium speed.
Add oil and blend on low speed for 2 minutes.
Mix in the melted dark chocolate to flavour and colour the batter.
Scale 50g of muffin mix into shiny silver cupcake patty pans or any decorative paper patty pan.
Bake at 200°C until baked through.
Boil the water, glucose and sugar together and cook syrup to 120°C (soft ball).
Place the egg yolks in a mixing bowl fitted with a whisk attachment and whisk mixture on second speed.
Once the sugar syrup has reached 120°C, slowly stream the hot mixture over the whisking eggs until all is in the bowl.
Turn speed of machine up to third speed (top speed) and continue to whisk until mixture cools down and doubles in volume.
Fold the softened butter into the egg mixture and continue to mix until light and aerated.
Mix in the green food colouring until you reach the desired colour.
Once petite cakes have cooled down begin decorating tops of each cake.
Using a piping bag fitted with a star tube nozzle pipe spirals on top of each petite cake forming mini Christmas trees.
Sprinkle the tops of each buttercream tree with sparkly sprinkles adding as much or as little bling as desired.
Store petite cakes in fridge or airtight container.
Yield: 40 cupcakes.
